Welcome to the Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO)
WREMO co-ordinates Civil Defence and Emergency Management services on behalf of the nine councils across the Wellington region - keeping you and your communities safe and prepared to respond and recover from emergencies.
The Wellington region is an awesome place to live, but it’s a little wild. We often experience earthquakes, storms, flooding and landslides. We’re also at risk from tsunamis.
These emergencies have similar impacts. It would be hard to get around, hard to communicate with loved ones and hard to get access to the essentials.
We’ve outlined the things you can do to prepare your household and community get through the challenging days safely, and as comfortably as possible.
Earthquake scenario to practise emergency response on 2nd anniversary of Kaikōura quake
Between the 14 and 28 November, councils across the Wellington region will be holding a series of training exercises using a simulated earthquake scenario to practise their emergency response procedures. The first of this series coincides with the second anniversary of the 2016 Kaikōura earthquake and takes place at Hutt City Council on Wednesday 14 November.
