Community Resilience

Resilience is more than simply having a civil defence kit and strong buildings.
— Mike Mendonça, Chief Resilience Officer WCC

For Inner City businesses and residents resilience means things like, after an event occurs do you:

  • Have a water supply
  • A replacement toilet
  • Grab bags
  • Family plan
  • Business plan, what if your staff can’t get home?
  • Business community plan – can you work off site and access data, client lists etc.
  • Cash in your grab and go bag – the money machine may not work
  • Do you know where the closest emergency hub location is?http://www.getprepared.org.nz/hubs/Wellington

Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) has a great website to help you prepare.
