Civil Defence

Civil Defence is the co-ordinated response to an emergency event. It involves multiple agencies, including the public, to monitor and respond. Councils are legislated to maintain Civil Defence operations under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002.

In a civil defence emergency, you can find the most current information on the Northland Civil Defence Facebook page.

Red Cross Hazard App

We recommend you download the Red Cross Hazard App. It's a valuable tool to help you and your family prepare for and respond to hazards, to help you get through emergencies, and receive alerts.

Emergency Mobile Alerts

Emergency Mobile Alerts are warning messages sent by authorised emergency agencies to mobile phones. The alerts are designed to keep people safe and are broadcast to all capable phones from targeted cell towers.

Be prepared

To be prepared for civil defence situations, you can create an emergency plan for your family using the online tool Get Ready. This site also provides resources for the different types of emergency situations we may face.

Find out more

You can find out more about Civil Defence in Northland on the Northland Regional Council's website.
