Civil Defence is about the resilience of our communities. We assist families and businesses to be ready when disaster strikes. We make plans, so we are ready to respond to emergencies, lead the response to emergency events, and coordinate recovery afterwards.

- Nelson Marlborough District Health Board,
- The Ministry of Social Development
