Civil Defence Centres
Civil Defence Centres will only open in an emergency when a decision is made that this is the best way to support the affected community.
To help us open Civil Defence Centres quickly, we have pre-identified possible locations.
During an emergency, Civil Defence will be broadcasting messages to the community. These messages will let you know what Civil Defence Centres are open. You must wait for this information as the Civil Defence Centre closest to you may not be open due to safety or community requirements.
There are a number of ways you can find out where your nearest centre has been set up:
