WREMO supports the Nelson/Tasman flood response

In August 2022, more than 200 homes were evacuated in the Nelson-Tasman area due to severe flooding from heavy rain.

Four of WREMOs Emergency Managers were deployed to the South Island in late August for one week to help support Nelson-Tasman Emergency Management Group with their efforts to support their communities.

Senior Recovery Advisor Scott Dray supported the Recovery Function, ICT Specialist Elyse Stallard supported the Logistics Function, and Emergency Management Advisors Katie Sharp and Rosie Tate supported the Public Information Management and Intelligence functions respectively.
