Let's make GeoNet 24/7

We live in a country spread across two tectonic plates and we experience frequent earthquakes. Yet New Zealand doesn't have a 24/7 staffed earthquake monitoring service.

After the quakes this week, RNZ has reported that the Government is now considering funding 24/7 staffing of GeoNet. So we need to make sure they come to the right decision. 

Let's let them know we want a 24/7 service to respond to and analyse natural disasters. That'll mean we're as prepared as possible when the next large earthquake hits.

Sign this petition

To the PM; Minister Responsible for EQC; Minister of Science and Innovation; and Cabinet:

Fund GeoNet to provide a 24/7 earthquake, tsunami and volcano monitoring service.
