Good and Ready volunteer
Do you want to help your community be better prepared for disasters and emergencies?
Let’s work together to build a Good and Ready Aotearoa.
Join us in supporting whānau in your community to be Good and Ready. Communities in the Aotearoa are safer, stronger and more resilient in a disaster or emergency situation because they connect, care and prepare. Volunteers work together with local New Zealand Red Cross teams to support and encourage their own communities to be Good and Ready.
