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.
Get to know your neighbours before an emergency happens
Do you know your neighbours? If not, why not get to know them at events happening in your area this weekend and next week? You could be each other’s best source of support in an emergency!
