Were you prepared when Cyclone Gabrielle impacted Northland?

What was your Plan B when infrastructure failed? Plan C? Plan D?

Being prepared for emergencies on your farm means you’re less likely to suffer stock and crop loss, injury,  or worse.

These workshops will cover:

  • how to prepare an emergency plan for your house and property
  • how to plan for animal welfare before emergencies
  • tips for working with insurers
  • backup energy systems to keep the power on
  • and more!


Workshops will run in seven locations across Northland from mid-February to the end of March.

Workshops are free to attend, and lunch will be provided.

Each workshop will also have a lucky door prize of emergency grab and go bags, valued at more than $400.


Registration will be essential so we can make catering arrangements.
