e-Bulletin is published nine times a year by the Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management. It discusses topics of interest to the civil defence emergency management sector. The aim is to share information and lessons, and to celebrate successes.

Stories can:
  • promote upcoming events and activities
  • report on what happened
  • announce new publications and guides
  • tell people about courses (ones you have been on and ones coming up)
  • describe response to emergencies
  • celebrate your successes
  • advise of staff changes
  • provide information about research (keeping in mind it is not a peer-reviewed journal).
Illustrations are most welcome. We love publishing your photos, graphics, tables - all the things that make stories more appealing and easier to read. Contributions can be a photo and caption if that works for the story. Impact does not publish advertising for or promote any commercial goods or services. Please email your submissions to

Stories should be no more than 200 words. The Ministry's quarterly magazine, Impact, publishes longer articles.
