Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO)

The Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office has useful information and, if necessary, alerts, relating specifically to the Wellington Region.

Receiving Emergency Alerts on Your Mobile

Many mobile phones can receive Emergency Mobile Alerts. These are messages about emergencies sent by authorised emergency agencies to capable mobile phones. You can check if your phone is compatible and get other information about the system here.

Emergency water

After a large earthquake, or possibly other disaster, your taps are likely to be dry for some time. You can't survive for long without water, and you need some for cooking, and you will be at risk from disease if you can't wash. So every household needs to have some water stored. You can buy 10 litre containers or 200 litre tanks from the Porirua City Council
