Update 1/12/2022: Thanks for all your feedback Bay of Plenty!

Over 250 people provided feedback to us on our group plan review.

We've been busy analysing your feedback over the past couple of weeks. We've put together a report summarising all the feedback received and how it will be incorporated into the revised Group Plan. Check under the Document Library tab below for the report.

Also Congratulations to Tessa from the Rotorua Lakes District who is the winner of the Grab & Go Emergency Kit.

Kia ora!

Bay of Plenty Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group would like your feedback on reviewing our Group Plan.

We want to know what is important to you, your whanau and your community before, during and after a disaster.

Everyone who completes our Group Plan survey will go in the draw to win a Grab & Go Emergency Kit.

What is the Group Plan?

There are a lot of hazards which could affect the Bay of Plenty region such as earthquakes, flooding, tsunami, volcanic eruptions and many more. These hazards can affect us, our friends and whanau and our communities. It is important that we are prepared for disasters to help us get through.

The Group Plan is a document that sets out how the Bay of Plenty CDEM Group works together with the community to prepare for and respond to disasters in the Bay of Plenty. The Plan includes the vision and direction on what we want Civil Defence and Emergency Management to look like in the Bay of Plenty.

Who are BOP Civil Defence Emergency Management?

The Bay of Plenty CDEM Group is governed by a Joint Committee of the Mayors of each member territorial authority (district and city councils) in the Bay of Plenty and an elected member from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council.

Emergency Management Officers from each of the territorial authorities and Emergency Management Bay of Plenty work together to deliver emergency management services to the Bay of Plenty.

What is Civil Defence and Emergency Management?

Civil Defence is not an organisation as such, but a system of coordinating emergency management. It's a way communities, organisations and government work together to get ready and get through an emergency. In this way, we are all Civil Defence. Civil Defence professionals are here to coordinate the emergency services, welfare service agencies, utility companies and the community during an emergency.
