Civil Defence

In an emergency, this page and the Buller Civil Defence Facebook page will be updated as frequently as possible to keep the community informed.

If a disaster happened now, would you be ready?

The beautiful West Coast landscape has been shaped by natural hazards over a number of years but it is these natural and sometimes man made hazards that can cause devastation and loss of life.

It is vital that you prepare now. Visit the Get Ready – Get Thru website to find out what to do to keep you and your family safe.

For more information or assistance on how to prepare for an emergency, contact Buller District Council’s Emergency Management Officer on 03 789 7999.  Alternatively, you can visit the West Coast Civil Defence Emergency Management Group website.
