A new Neighbourhood Watch website will help North Canterbury residents get ready in an emergency. North Canterbury residents can get notifications about incidents/events and crimes in your area by text and email.
In addition, if you have specialised skills and equipment that could be useful in an emergency you can provide details about this as well. There is a database of community members can help in a natural disaster.
The database also includes the sharing of information on suspicious behaviour, natural emergencies and disasters, which can help you be prepared and safe if an emergency should occur.
For North Canterbury the website is: https://northcanterbury.getsready.net/
There’s also a Christchurch and Selwyn District versions of the site.
