Can't Get Home happens

In an emergency trains and buses may not be able to operate, roads may be closed and streets or neighbourhoods might be blocked off.

If you can’t take your normal route home, how will you get there? Who will you go with? Where will you meet up if your street is a no-go zone?

Second meeting place

Agree on a meeting place if you can’t get home. It might be the school, a friend’s place, or with whānau.

Travel together

If you work away from home, find workmates who live in your area. In an emergency you could travel together.

Pack a getaway bag

Have a getaway bag at work or in your car, with walking shoes, warm clothes, some snack food and a bottle of water. A torch, batteries and radio are useful too.
