Community Response Plans

During a Civil Defence Emergency communities can become isolated from outside help and resources.

The plans below outline what is available within communities to respond to an emergency and sustain life until outside help arrives. The plans are based on supporting communities for at least three days and were developed by Community Boards and other community representatives in conjunction with civil defence staff.

If you're interested in participating in emergency planning for your community, please contact Emergency Management Bay of Plenty on 0800 884 880 or email your enquiry to
