Whakaari/White Island Response Review

Alan Thompson made this Official Information request to Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management

The request was successful.

From: Alan Thompson

Dear NEMA,

Minister Peeni Henare recently has advised that NEMA is “in the process of reviewing its response to the Whakaari/White Island eruption". It is noted that NEMA have advised that it was not the Lead Agency for the eruption response and that Bay of Plenty CDEMG were the Lead Agency.

Under the provisions of the Official Information Act I request the following information relating to this review:

1. A copy of the Terms of Reference or other documents setting out the scope of the review being undertaken by NEMA of the response by CD to the Whakaari/White Island eruption?

2. Conformation that the review will include all aspects of the response to the eruption and in particular to the search, rescue and recovery of victims of the eruption, that being the major operational task undertaken under the management/coordination of the Lead Agency (BOPEMG)? The search, rescue and recovery operations post eruption were undertaken by NZ Police who advised that they were a service operating to support the Lead Agency (BOPEMG) under NZ's Coordinated Incident Management System (CIMS).

3. A copy of the review report on the eruption response as being undertaken by NEMA.

Yours faithfully,
Alan Thompson
Lower Hutt
