Dear Riki,

 

Thank you for your email on 5 April 2020.

 

Please find the following information in relation to your request.

 

Christchurch City Council is part of the ‘Canterbury Civil Defence
Emergency Management (CDEM) Group’. The Canterbury CDEM Group, and its
member local authorities (of which Christchurch City Council is one),
emergency services, local branches of government agencies, lifeline
utilities, non-government organisations, and community groups, is the
primary means of delivering CDEM to communities within Canterbury. The
CDEM arrangements for the hazards and risks specific to a community are
addressed within the respective CDEM Group Plans and other local authority
plans. These plans need to align with the national CDEM plan and other
national arrangements (and so it is worth having an understanding of these
as well).

 

At the time of the February 2011 earthquake, the following key national
plans were in place. Please note that these have since been superseded by
later versions and amendments. I have provided links to the current
versions:

·         [1]Civil Defence Emergency Management Act 2002

·         [2]National Civil Defence Emergency Management Plan Order 2015
(note that an older version was in place at the time of the Feb 2011
earthquake)

·         [3]National Disaster Resilience Strategy (note that an older
2007 version was in place at the time of the Feb 2011 earthquake)

 

For the copies of the above as at February 2011, please contact the
[4]National Emergency Management Agency.

 

At the time of the February 2011 earthquake, the following key regional
plan (for Canterbury) was in place:

·         [5]Canterbury CDEM Group Plan (note that an older version was in
place at the time of the Feb 2011 earthquake)

 

For a copy of the above as at February 2011, please contact [6]Environment
Canterbury (Regional Council).

 

Riki, it has become necessary to further consult with staff. However, the
staff member I need to talk to has been deployed to respond to the
COVID-19 situation, and is currently unable to advise. I hope to have
further information to you as soon as I am able.

 

Kind regards,
