Last Round of Earthquake Briefings

26 October 2012

The last of the 'Wellington Rocks' community earthquake briefings will take place over the next two weeks.

The briefings are hosted by Wellington City Council and GNS Science, with support from the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO).
The briefings are a chance to hear from GNS scientists about the earthquake risk to the city, what has been learnt from previous earthquakes in the region and what they are learning from the Canterbury earthquake sequence. 

They provide an overview of what has already been done and what is planned in the future to improve the resilience of our city. Information will also be provided to residents to help them make sure they are ready to get through an earthquake.  

Around a thousand Wellingtonians have so far attended one of the 16 briefings held over the past two months.
