by Peter Newport - Nov 21, 2023

Here's the top entry so far in our free earthquake kit competition, from Ashleigh and Jared Lindley of Hanley's Farm, Queenstown. Can you do better? Be in to win a full earthquake kit worth $376. Send photos and your preparedness story to [email protected]

"After the witnessing the various weather events around New Zealand early 2023, we decided it was time to prioritise putting together a kit in case of emergency here. We have a to-go bag, and a larger tub of emergency supplies kept in our hot water cupboard by the front door.  We keep with it a portable gas hob, the cats’ carriers and a black bag full of spare clothes. We have about 20 litres of water in the shed and a 20 litre bladder with the kit to fill up if/where we can.

"Our friends have done something similar. We’re in Hanley’s Farm, and they’re in Frankton, so we’ve made a plan to access whichever kit is closest depending on where we are if disaster hits! We recognise it’s a privilege as all of this costs but it was about prioritising it for a few weeks and it’s a nice peace of mind knowing it’s there.

"Here's a few photos of our set up!"
