Ashburton Get Ready is a purpose-built web system where residents can securely record their contact details and any special needs, resources and skills they want to share, to help their local community look after each other in an emergency.
Gets Ready is used to share emergency warnings. These may include wind, snow, fire warnings, water quality warnings and fire rules and other messages with members. They arrive as email and / or texts. Those warnings let you share the information with those who are not on email or text but are part of your neighbourhood.
It is maintained by residents, for residents and you can be involved. Join in your local system, and talk with your local Gets Ready contacts.
