Civil Defence participation
The Hazard App is being rolled out region by region, by Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Groups. You will only receive alerts in areas where the local CDEM Groups are actively using the app as one of their alerting tools.

Why change to the Hazard App?
While the Auckland Civil Defence app has been a success and served the community well – hazards have no respect for boundaries. The Red Cross Hazard App allows users to receive alerts, around the whole of New Zealand, and in many parts of the world.
It is part of an international programme aimed and enhancing community resilience and will benefit visitors to New Zealand and New Zealanders travelling abroad.
