Civil Defence Emergency Management

Current location in the site

Selwyn District Council has an "all-hazards" approach to emergency management 

The term "all-hazards" extends beyond traditional Civil Defence hazards, such as earthquakes, to include all major hazards, such as rural fires, bio-chemicals disasters, multi-faceted accidents and pandemic events.

The aim is to reduce the impact that a disaster will have by:

  • reducing the risk (preventing people building in flood zones)
  • making sure the community is ready (at home emergency kits)
  • response planning (helping those in need)
  • and recovery to assist communities to help themselves get back on their feet as quickly as possible.
