NZ schools prepared for disaster reduction day

CD NZ schools prepared for disaster reduction day

"A programme teaching children about natural hazards is well underway in the New Zealand schools, says the Ministry of Civil Defence (CD).

United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan recently called for education about disasters in all schools worldwide ahead of today's International Day for Disaster Reduction.

Mr Annan said children were especially vulnerable during disasters, but were powerful agents of change if they had the right information."
