"GETS READY" is coming to Arrowtown! The Disaster Response Scheme funded by QLDC will be compiling important information from residents about local skills and resources, which could assist in the aftermath of a disaster in Arrowtown.
The Gets Ready system is being rolled out in other Queenstown Lakes communities, and will ensure Arrowtown has a robust disaster-response plan, including vital up-to-date information on community resources / equipment, such as generators, diggers, chainsaws, and residents with first-aid / medical skills within the community.
In the event that Arrowtown is cut off from surrounding areas by a natural disaster, the scheme enables local residents to support each other until external support is available.
If you think you have valuable resources or skills, or might require specific assistance in a major event, you can find out more and register your details at: www.otago.getsready.net.
