Be Part of an Emergency Response Group
If you belong to a community organisation or group, school, kindergarten, Marae, church, or club, our Civil Defence team would like to meet with you, and get some contact details so we can better work with you if we had an emergency.
Each community knows its own situation best, so it is important that you have a say in the plans that we in Civil Defence create for your community.
One amazing way to do this is to become a part of your nearest Civil Defence Community Response Group, or create one for your area or field of interest (such as lifestyle block owners). You choose the best way to run your group, you will get to create your own Community Response Plan, and you'll have a direct connection to Civil Defence.
If you join or create a community response group, you'll have access to:
- your own forum
- an online portal to host your group's documents
- access to exclusive behind-the-scenes information from around the region and the country
- exclusive previews
- specialised invitation-only training and events
- official Community Response branding for you to use on anything from badges to t-shirts to posters.
