Red Cross Hazard App

New Zealand Red Cross has teamed up with Civil Defence, GNS and MetService to help Kiwis make it safely through disasters.

The Red Cross Hazard App sends you official warnings and alerts, tailored to your current and chosen locations, and contains step-by-step guides to help your household create an emergency plan and prepare getaway kits.

Information and disaster guides are also pre-loaded in the app so you have instant access, even without cell phone reception or an internet connection!

Designed to operate in large scale emergencies when communication networks are under pressure, the app also allows you to send an ‘I am safe’ message to family, friends and social media following an emergency.
