Emergency Planning Meeting. We met the WBOPDC Council staff member Theo, the new western bay emergency planning guy at Paengaroa Hall 21st Nov at 4.30 pm. Our Community Assn needs a "front" person, a "project manager" for Emergencies. We're talking Civil Defence co-ordination, Earthquakes, Tidal Waves, Volcanic eruptions, Flooding, etc. We have great facilities in Paengaroa with our Hall, and flat land higher up than our surrounds. But if there's a disaster we all need to know what to do, how to help each other. If you would like to get involved please let our secretary know and we can get you involved.
Paengaroa Hall Old Coach Road is the new Civil Emergency Centre.
You may have an emergency right now. Under the tab community organisations we have links to Police, Neighbourhood support, and the Paengaroa Community Notices facebook page.
PAENGAROA HALL IS A CIVIL EMERGENCY CENTRE. See below the community Emergency Plan for Paengaroa Area. Click on the bottom righthand corner to see page two. We now need a representative from our association to deal with the Bay of Plenty Emergency Management Team, part of the WBOPDC. If you'd like to see this important matter dealt with properly, please volunteer. contact Sue Matthews the Chairperson, or Bruce, our secretary.
