New Zealand ShakeOut is our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi.
ShakeOut takes place across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake. Drop, Cover and Hold. You can also practise a tsunami hīkoi (evacuation) if you're in a coastal area.
Our national drill for 2021 is over, but you can still practice an earthquake and tsunami drill at any time. Just Drop, Cover and Hold for up to one minute, and if you’re in a coastal area practise your tsunami hīkoi.
