Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group Plan 2011 - 2016
Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group Plan 2011-2016
This plan is a statutory requirement under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002. It is the second plan prepared by the Auckland CDEM Group and came into effect on June 30 2011.
The aim of the plan is to provide for a co-ordinated and integrated approach to the way significant risks and hazards in Auckland are managed. This will help ensure the community’s social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being, as well as safety of people and property. The plan sets the direction for civil defence and emergency management in the Auckland region.
The broad purpose of this plan is to enable the effective and efficient management of regionally significant hazards and risks.
This plan provides for:
- Strengthening relationships
- Encouraging cooperation
- Seeking commitment to achieve better outcomes
The vision of this plan is "A Resilient Auckland" and its mission is to create that resilience together. A resilient Auckland is one where the community is prepared and bounces back quickly after a hazard event. This is vital in terms of Auckland’s social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability.
