THE Fiji team and the rest of the sides competing in the HSBC Sevens World Series have been put on earthquake alert.
A 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit 15kilometres outside Wellington City two weeks ago.
Aftershocks have been felt over the past few days.
Wellington 7s organisers have taken precautionary measures in case another earthquake strikes again.
Wellington 7s general manager Marty Donoghue said the teams had been made aware of the measures.
"A couple of weeks ago we had about a size 6 earthquake. So we have taken precautions and the teams know the procedure within the hotel and stadium if there is an earthquake," Donoghue said.
"It's just simple precautions that you would expect."
He said the tournament was ready for kick-off.
"Everything's ready to go. The weather is going to be fine, the crowd is expected to be its normal exuberant self and all the teams are ready."
Meanwhile, organisers are again enforcing tighter alcohol management controls.
"The city has had various changes throughout the years the tournament has been on," Donoghue said.
"Over the last couple of years there has always been a liquor ban but now there's a blanket liquor ban within the city itself.
"What the ban means is that unless you're in a licensed premise you can't walk around with alcohol and be drinking it on the streets.
"The stadium is a licensed premise and it still has to ensure that it obeys the law.
"The stadium has done a lot of work to ensure that our fans are safe."
