What To Do

What To Do In The Event Of An Emergency

If you need to report an emergency always call 111 in the first instance.

If you need other assistance call Waimate District Council on (03) 689 0000.

Look after your immediate family first then see if your neighbours need help. Are there vulnerable / disabled /elderly people nearby who maybe in need of help?

Listen to the radio to find out what is happening. In Waimate listen to Port FM 93.2MHz. If you don't have a battery powered radio remember most vehicles have radios.
