Hawke’s Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management (HBCDEM) is seeking suitable applicants for this important role to lead the development of a Hikurangi Response Plan (HRP) for the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand for a twelve month period.
This is a multi-agency project which will coordinate civil defence emergency management response planning using relevant scientific knowledge related to the Hikurangi subduction zone.
