Community Emergency Hubs are gathering points for your community. Hubs used to be called Civil Defence Centres – but we changed the name to better reflect their purpose.

After a large earthquake, you should gather at your local Hub to coordinate your community’s response. You will only have the skills and resources available within your community, as official agencies like Police and Fire will not be able to assist you.

Hubs contain a basic start-up kit consisting of stationery, an AM/FM radio, maps, and a Civil Defence twoway radio that allows communication with your local council’s Emergency Operations Centre. There are no additional stocks of emergency supplies at Hubs.

Attend a Hub Exercise in your suburb and find out how you can help your community in an emergency.
