The most powerful way we can prepare is to hear from people who experienced the events or have something to share.➡️ You can share your experiences by using the online submission form: consultations.dia.govt.nz/submissions/share-to-prepare/The survey should take between 10-20 mins to complete. The closing date for submissions has been extended to 15 December 2023.Thank you sharing your experience and for helping to make a difference💜🧡➡️ Find out more about this Inquiry on the Department of Internal Affairs website: www.dia.govt.nz/Government-Inquiry-into-the-Response-to-the-North-Island-Severe-Weather-Events ...
