New Zealand ShakeOut - Whakahaumaru Aotearoa

New Zealand ShakeOut is our national earthquake drill and tsunami hikoi.

Get involved in New Zealand ShakeOut

ShakeOut is held across the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake – Drop, Cover and Hold – and to practise a tsunami hikoi (evacuation) if in a coastal area.

Drop, Cover and Hold is the right action to take in an earthquake. It stops you being knocked over, makes you a smaller target for falling and flying objects and protects your head, neck and vital organs.
