Team to support emergency responses up and running

Civil Defence Minister Hon Peeni Henare today announced that the Emergency Management Assistance Team has been established and is ready to be deployed to provide support in an emergency response.

The Emergency Management Assistance Team – previously referred to as the Fly In Team – was announced last year by the Government as part of the Emergency Management System Reform, a package of improvements to New Zealand’s emergency management system.
