Emergency Management / Rural Fire

When a disaster or emergency strikes we must be confident that organisations involved in managing the situation are working together effectively. It's also reassuring to know they are prepared and have planned for such an event.

This is a key theme behind a new approach to managing emergencies in the Manawatu-Wanganui Region. There is now a strong focus on increased communication and support among those responsible for managing emergencies.
