Hi,

Registrations for the 2019 New Zealand ShakeOut have closed.

We had an amazing ShakeOut this year with almost 800,000 people taking part!

Although the official ShakeOut is over for this year, you can still take the time to practise the correct action to take during an earthquake.

See you next year!

How to ShakeOut

New Zealand ShakeOut is a self-run earthquake drill.

  • DROP down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.
  • COVER your head and neck (or your entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you).
  • HOLD on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.
