This plan is a statutory requirement under the Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002. It is the third plan prepared by the Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group and came into effect in August 2016.

Its aim is to provide for a coordinated and integrated approach to the way significant risks and hazards are managed in Auckland. This will help ensure the community’s social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being, as well as safety of people and property. The plan outlines our vision and goals for managing and preparing for emergencies in the Auckland region.


The vision of the Group Plan is "Working together to build a resilient Auckland". We can accomplish this by strengthening relationships and encouraging cooperation both within the community and with our partners.
