Review of BOPEMG response to the Whakaari/White Island Eruption

Alan Thompson made this Official Information request to Bay of Plenty Regional Council

Bay of Plenty Regional Council did not have the information requested.

From: Alan Thompson

Dear Bay of Plenty Regional Council,

In June 29 this year BOPRC advised me in an OIA response "that the debrief process for the Whakaari / White Island volcanic eruption response has not been completed as it was interrupted by the need to respond to the COVID-19 response". As it is approaching the 12 month anniversary of this disaster I am sure that your office will have complete this very important review by now.

Under the provisions of the LGOIA could you please provide me with a copy of the report on the BOPRC/BOPEMG's Whakaari/White Island response review.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Thompson
