If you are a new or an established business, Disaster Readiness Consultants (DRC) will ensure that your workplace is disaster ready!
DRC’s services involve us visiting your premises to get an insight into your workplace environment, location and people so we can get a snapshot of your disaster readiness and legal compliance status.
We engage with the required governing bodies on your behalf to fulfil all fire safety, evacuation, emergency response and the relevant health and safety obligations for your workplace.
We focus on things like emergency plans, equipment, geographical risks and most importantly – your people!

Disaster Readiness Workshop
Our 4-hour Disaster Readiness Workshop is an engaging, informal and practical way of attaining skills that can be used anywhere when a disaster strikes.
We go through the basics of “what to do” when you need to respond to disaster situations, with the main emphasis on having a go using actual emergency equipment and the latest first aid and rescue techniques. We then put it all together in a controlled environment with a scenario.
Our workshop also has a section on dealing with the aftermath of experiencing traumatic events. We discuss how to look after your mental health and what techniques and support services are available to help manage stressful situations. Our consultants are highly experienced in doing this in the emergency response industry and are accredited with Certificate in Mental Health.
We can deliver our workshop from your premises or from one of the many locations we have available for use throughout Wellington (minimal venue hire costs apply). We ensure a relaxed and informative experience, perfect for a team-building exercise that is not only useful but may save a life one day!
