PREPARED: Timaru District civil defence manager Lamorna Cooper is ready for a disaster.

How should South Cantabrians prepare for the apocalypse?

The Herald asked Civil Defence manager Lamorna Cooper, who shared two lists of recommendations - one, her personal must-haves for the end of the world, and the other, a list of practical items that Kiwis should always keep to hand.

"I'd also highly recommend people come in to the council office to grab a copy of the Timaru Survival Guide," she said.
