We want to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable holiday in the Coastal Bay of Plenty.

Before your visit, we recommend that you download the New Zealand Red Cross Hazard App to help you identify hazards, reduce any risks, and stay informed if there is a regional or national emergency.

If you're planning to head off the beaten track, the Department of Conservation's Land Safety Code will also ensure that you're prepared for your time in the great outdoors. 

We have a few more useful tips, below, to help keep you safe.
