A township that has faced fires, earthquakes and floods in recent years is having its first-ever Rural Readiness Expo. The aim is preparing households for future disasters. The event will feature live music and food, and self-sufficiency workshops such as butchery, kitchen gardens, and preserving. The Wairau Valley Community Trust in Marlborough has organised the inaugural event at the local hall. Members of the police service and fire brigade will be at the expo, and the Marlborough Emergency Management Operations Centre, will be operating a Shaky House earthquake simulator, to help people practice their “drop, cover, hold” safety techniques.
