Public Meeting - Ōpunakē Community Emergency Management
A public meeting will be held at the Sandford’s Event Centre, on Wednesday 10 March at 7 pm for anyone interested in being involved in Ōpunakē’s Community Emergency Management planning.
During disasters, councils and emergency services are likely to be overwhelmed and may not be able to respond to every issue immediately. Communities have many of the skills, resources and contacts needed to help each other at a local level.
This community meeting will discuss ways the Ōpunakē community can respond locally to help each other and build community resilience.
If you think having an Emergency Plan for Ōpunakē and the surrounding area is important and you might be able to help, please come along to the meeting at Sandford’s Event Centre on Wednesday 10 March at 7 pm.
Taranaki Emergency Management staff will be present to explain how communities can be involved with emergency management, and what training they can give to volunteers.
If you have any questions or would like to be involved but can’t make the meeting, please contact Glenn Hansen at 0800 111 323 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
