We can’t predict an earthquake, but we can be prepared. UCOL is taking part in the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management’s annual ShakeOut event.
At UCOL's Wairarapa, Horowhenua and Manawatū campuses, all staff and students will be expected to take part in a Drop, Cover, Hold drill. When you hear the fire alarm sound at 1.30pm, please drop, cover and hold in the nearest suitable space.
We have a competition running for the best 'drop, cover, hold position'. Snap a picture of you in your simulation position and send it through to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note these photos may be used for future promotion of ShakeOut or earthquake awareness.
