The author reflects on her experiences following the September 4, 2010 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand and an aftershock on February 22, 2011. She notes that the events provided her with a first-hand opportunity to study several concepts central to gerontological research and social work practice, including place attachment, ontological security, and resilience, and discusses the transfer of local learning about earthquake preparedness and recovery planning to the national level.
