Northland Civil Defence

Civil Defence Emergency Management's role is to ensure public awareness of:

  • Hazards around us;
  • How those hazards can be reduced;
  • What you can do to prepare yourselves for an emergency;
  • What to do during and immediately after an emergency.

The Kaipara District Council is responsible for the preparation of plans and programmes to:

  • Reduce the identifiable hazards/risks;
  • Train staff to respond to any emergency event;
  • Co-ordinate any such response in co-operation in other emergency and welfare agencies; and
  • Co-ordinate the immediate, medium and long term rehabilitation of the community, following a disaster.
