Hazards Information Portal

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council’s role

The vision of the Hawke’s Bay CDEM Group is a “A resilient Hawke’s Bay community” and the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council works with the Group members to reduce the impact of natural hazards in several ways.

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council's Emergency Management Office is responsible for the administration of the CDEM Group and assisting the Group Emergency Operations Centre during a major emergency. This includes assisting the Group Controller with science and technical advice about any hazard event.

We also research and monitor hazards affecting the region including maintaining flood protection and warning systems in the region.

Hazard information is retained to promote hazard awareness in the community in the form of maps, reports, and publications. We also use hazard information for land use management by developing regional policies and plans, advocating policies and rules in district plans, and advising on notified resource consents.
