Community emergency hubs

In a major event, it is you and your community that will open a community emergency hub (previously called civil defence centres).

Go to a community emergency hub if you need help or information, or if you are able to offer assistance. There are eight community emergency hubs located across the Kāpiti Coast:


Ōtaki Memorial Hall, Main Street

Te Horo:

Te Horo Community Hall, School Road


Waikanae Memorial Hall, Pehi Kupa Street


St Paul's Church, Kāpiti Road and

Kāpiti Community Centre, Ngahina Street

Raumati Beach:

Kāpiti Uniting Parish, 27 Raumati Road

Raumati South:

Raumati South Primary School, 54A Matai Road


Paekākāriki Primary School, Wellington Road
