Preparing for an emergency

Personal emergency planning

Before you can commit to remedial actions at The Learning Connexion, it is understood you will need to know that your family is safe.  It is essential you have a Household Emergency Plan.

Make arrangements for how to contact your partner, know who will collect the kids from school, and where you will meet.

If you are at home - you will need to be self-sufficient for 3-5 days.

For further details see:  


Workplace Emergency Kits

You are expected to be self-sufficient for 3 or more days if you are unable to leave TLC in the event of an emergency. Your workplace emergency supplies should include the following:

  • Essential  personal medication

  • Food – non-perishable, high energy, i.e. canned food, muesli bars

  • Warm clothing/wet weather gear

  • Good walking shoes

  • Water – at least 3 litres per person per day

  • Torch and batteries

Short term loans of radio handsets

Short term loan of radio handsets for e.g. events, graduation, VIP functions, etc. is possible with advanced notice, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


EOC (Emergency Operations Centre)

The Emergency Operations Centre is located at TLC Campus, 182 Eastern Hutt Taita - (opposite the Storage Services). The EOC will be activated when the required response to an emergency event is beyond ‘TLC business as usual’ capabilities. The contact phone number for the EOC is  0272634553.

Emergency Water Supply

It may be days, weeks or even months before water supplies are returned to normal after a major event in the Wellington region. For this reason, TLC  has emergency water until normal water supplies are restored. Usage will be prioritised as follows:

  • Drinking

  • Food preparation

  • Essential hygiene

Staff should remember that water sources should be used in the following order:
  • Personal drink bottles

  • Staff personal emergency water containers (3 litres each)

  • Water coolers (turn off inlet valve as soon as possible after incident)

  • Conserved water in building systems

  • Water heaters (Zips)

  • Hot water cylinders (turn off inlet valve as soon as possible after incident)

  • 400 litre drum supplies

  • Emergency Supplies are kept in container behind MM3

Note: If there is a doubt regarding water quality it should be treated with ordinary household bleach, (1/2 teaspoon or 2.5ml to 10 litres of water).
