Civil Defence Emergency Management in Northland is led by the Northland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group.
Members of the group include the region's four councils, the NZ Police and Fire and Emergency New Zealand.
In an emergency, two of the most up-to-date sources of information are the Northland Civil Defence Facebook page and the emergency status panel on the top right corner of the Northland Regional Council website.
