This is being created for Greenhithe Community by Greenhithe Community.
The Greenhithe Emergency Resilience Group (GERG) was established in 2018 by local organisations to create a local specific Resilience Plan in case of a large-scale disaster. We appreciate the support and guidance of Auckland Emergency Management.
Why? So we can manage a local disaster as a community more effectively.
Potential threats to Greenhithe are –
Weather events- causing building damage, power outage, flooding, road closure, land slips, power outage
Earthquake /Tidal surges/tsunami
(Plane crash and volcanic eruption are much less likley)
The Greenhithe Emergency Resilience Group is made up of local volunteer community leaders-
Fire Chief Isabelle Lardeaux – Gilloux
Volunteer Fire Fighter – ‘Gunner’ Ashford
Chair of Greenhithe Residents Association (GRA) – Brian Carran
Managing Director of Greenhithe Community Trust (GCT) – Dr Amanda Mitchell
Secretary of GCT – Michelle Yates (RN)
The Greenhithe Fire Station on Greenhithe Rd will be the Central Coordination Hub in an emergency and information will be disseminated from the GERG to the community from here via the Neighbourhood Support Network and other methods. The Village Hall, next to the Fire Station will also be part of the Emergency Hub.
