Community emergency hubs

Community Emergency Hubs (formerly called Civil Defence Centres) are pre-identified places that provide a venue for the community to coordinate their efforts to help each other during and after a disaster.

Through Community Response Planning, WREMO works with communities to identify community strengths and resources that could be useful during a disaster, vulnerabilities that the community should check during a disaster or consider mitigating beforehand, and potential solutions to the challenges a community will face during a disaster. Outcomes from this planning process, such as a list of pre-identified community assets, are recorded in your Community Emergency Hub Operating Guide stored within your hub's operating kit.
