We’re incredibly lucky to live here, but like anywhere, it comes with some hazards. Greater Wellington has that covered with comprehensive structures and plans in place for earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and storms.
We look to our past and the future to be well prepared for emergencies and hazards. We combine the latest science with historical data, current information and future forecasting. We use those assessments to develop policy, land use planning and emergency management planning. All this information is available to help you make informed choices about where you live, work and play.
Flooding in the Wellington Region poses a risk to both life and property. Many of our urban and rural communities are at risk.
Civil defence and emergency management in our region is coordinated through WREMO, the Wellington Regional Emergency Management Group. Find out how you can get prepared...
