New Zealand ShakeOut 2018

Massey University will once again participate in the New Zealand ShakeOut, a national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi (evacuation).

ShakeOut drills are held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake, which is to Drop, Cover and Hold. More than 1.34 million people took part in the last New Zealand ShakeOut, held in 2015.

The drills will take place at 9.30am on Thursday, October 18. Massey staff and students are encouraged to take part in the drill. All they have to do is to Drop, Cover and Hold for up to one minute.

For staff teaching or leading a meeting during the drill, a PowerPoint presentation ShakeOut 2018 is available to help facilitate participation.

During an emergency, the University will use the following channels to communicate with staff, students and the wider community:
