Now that I have great internet in my office at Victoria University of Wellington, I am going to try and catch up on my blog posts. I am sitting in my chair with my feet up on the wide windowsill with a view of the Parliament building aka the "Beehive."
Earlier today, I have had a great orientation to "health and safety" --That's the orientation one is given when they arrive in a new building for the first time. A review of earthquake procedures and other emergency information such as how to call our "911" --here it is "111" but from inside my office I will need to dial 1 first so it will be "1111.' People are encouraged to call 111 during an incident, even if they believe someone else has called. I am told that there is a log kept of the number of callers from each incident and that it is a good thing to have more people call it in. To call it in, one just needs to dial the number 111 and hang up, or at least this is my understanding of it.
