Community Preparedness

Disaster Rediness

 

The MCA has worked with Wellington Region Emergency Management Office to develop the Maungaraki Community Emergency Hub Guide.

This plan is to ensure that we can respond in the first 72 hours of a large emergency with little or no assistance from emergency services. For the plan to be successful we need as many people as possible to be familiar with it so please download it, read it and pop it into your emergency kit.

To get prepared for an Earthquake read the Earthquake Planning Guide.

Wellington Region Emergency Management have compiled a Community Resilience Strategy to help communities prepare for emergencies.
