On 22 February 2011 the city of Christchurch on the South
Island of New Zealand was devastated in the most destructive in a series of
earthquakes known as the Canterbury Earthquakes: 185 people were killed and
parts of the centre of the city destroyed. In 2014, with the population still
vulnerable and recovering from the main earthquake, the local council decided

landslides could be expected. The public relations team were involved in a
communication programme that had to be sensitive, but honest and where the
residents had to be informed before the press gained any information.
