The latest spate of earthquakes rocking parts of the country have illustrated that in the face of a shake, many New Zealanders stop, cover, hold and tweet.

The Internet has become the primary source for information on, and communication about emergencies and natural disasters, but what does this mean? What are the opportunities and challenges of going online to prepare for, or respond to, an emergency? What happens if the Internet goes down?

We will explore the Internet’s role in emergencies and how key players in disaster prevention and response use the Internet.

Panellists for the event are:
- Dan Neely, WREMO
- Sara McBride, GeoNet
- Susie Ferguson, Radio New Zealand (Chair)
