Got your 200L emergency water tank yet?

By Rachael van Rij | Posted: Tuesday May 29, 2018

If not, youll have a chance to buy one (or more) between 11.30am to 12.30pm on Saturday, 9 June.

Northern Ward councillors will be selling them for $110 each outside Churton Park New World. To ensure one is reserved for you, pre-order and pre-pay by emailing [email protected].

Mention the name of Amesbury School in your email, and $10 from each tank sale will be donated to Amesbury School.

In an emergency, your household will have to care for yourselves and your pets for at least 7 days until water distribution points are set up. If an earthquake hit, it could take several weeks to restore water service.

You need to have at least 3 litres of drinking water for each person per day. You will also need water for pets, cooking and washing.
