They include the development of neigh- bourhood and com- munity emergency plans, giving social media a key role in preparing for an emergency and the an- nouncement of a major regional civil defence exercise. No neighbourhood or community civil defence plans exist in Auckland. Mr Brown says it's a serious weakness. It will obviously take some time to implement this across Auckland, but to begin with eight com- munities will have their own plans progressed within 100 days of the birth of the Auckland Council,'' he says. Mr Brown says social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter as well as e-learning are a great way to raise aware- ness and preparedness for emergencies. The Auckland-wide civil defence exercise is scheduled early next year with details being announced soon. While the memory of what the people of Christchurch have had to endure is still fresh in people's minds we need to take the opportunity to ensure Auckland is ready for emergency situations,'' he says. Auckland may not be as prone to earthquakes as other places but there are many other kinds of emergency -- tsunami, volcanic eruption or whatever -- that we need to be ready for.''
