Tips for lifestylers

Hayley Squance

Preparedness matters. That is the theme of a Waipā District Council-organised workshop in Ōhaupō for lifestyle blockers.

The facilitator is Hayley Squance who has a PhD in emergency management and is a veterinarian with extensive experience as a first responder.

She also founded Massey University’s veterinary emergency response team.

The support, recovery and resilience workshop gives participants tailored information and resources on how to address specific lifestyle block needs and encompasses the safety and well-being of animals.

Squance runs the workshops around New Zealand.

“We know that the majority of New Zealanders don’t have a plan. So just thinking about your animals and what you’re going to do with them is important.

“If you’re planning for your pets, you’re planning for yourself.”

The workshop is at the Ōhaupō Sports & Recreation Centre from 2pm on Sunday.
