Community Response (Civil Defence)
“Community Response” is the new face of Civil Defence. It’s being rolled out across the Selwyn District, by the Selwyn District Council, as a result of the earthquakes. It is based on the Neighbourhood Support model where people share contact details and “check on their neighbors” in an emergency.
Each District has a “Community Response Team” and their role is to organise their area to “Get Ready” to look after themselves & each other, in an emergency. People are asked to give their contact details, and offered the opportunity to indicate any special Needs, Skills & Resources they would like to offer during an emergency. Details are recorded on a secure website called “Selwyn Gets Ready” – designed for this purpose.
If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact:
