Waikato Region Emergency Management

Community Organisation

Waikato Region Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group coordinates emergency management and civil defence activites for the Waikato region.

Civil Defence is not one thing. It is communities, organisations and government working together to get ready and get through an emergency. We are all Civil Defence.

Civil Defence professionals are here to coordinate the emergency services, welfare service agencies, utility companies and the community during an emergency. Because you are Civil Defence too, you need to make sure you can take care of yourself and people you care about when there is an emergency.
