The Wellington Earthquake National Initial Response Plan (WENIRP) directs and coordinates the immediate national response to a major Wellington earthquake, to ensure the most effective use of scarce resources until a formal response structure and specific national action plan has been established.
The East Cape earthquake and tsunami: 2 September 2016 Post Event Report (MCDEM response) outlines the Ministry’s response to the East Cape earthquake and tsunami on 2 September 2016.
This plan describes the procedures to receive, assess and disseminate tsunami notifications at the national level.

This guideline is to provide information for anyone seeking to apply for funding from the Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Resilience Fund.
The purpose of this document is to describe the Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) awards available to people, groups or organisations in New Zealand in recognition of contribution or service to CDEM and the process for nominations.
The purpose of this guideline is to provide for a nationally consistent approach to developing tsunami evacuation zones, maps, and public information for CDEM Groups and local authorities.
The Ministry of Civil Defence & Emergency Management National Capability Assessment Report examines how well the country’s Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Groups are set up to deliver the National CDEM Strategy’s four goals of: community awareness and preparedness, reduced risks from hazards, improved management of emergencies and improved recovery from emergencies.
Planning is a key part of a successful emergency response. It integrates all functions and agencies into a unified effort which aims to proactively manage hazard consequences. Response Planning in CDEM aims to provide a consistent approach to carrying out response planning across all agencies involved in CDEM-led emergencies. It gives a thorough overview of the Planning function, how it is applied in a CDEM context, and includes a number of templates and suggested processes to make this information more accessible.
The CDEM Amendment Bill seeks to provide a smooth and coordinated transition of arrangements and powers from the response phase to the recovery phase. The proposed amendments have regard to the constitutional conventions that need to accompany any legislation that provides powers in emergency-like situations.
