A series of three public Emergency Preparedness meetings will be held in the coming weeks. The meetings will be facilitated by theWellington Regional Emergency Management Office, to form a community-led response plan for our area.
In the event of an emergency, residents and businesses in Churton Park and Glenside will be faced with a range of different opportunities and challenges, so we hope to see a cross section of residents across both suburbs who can work together to formulate a comprehensive plan.
The Churton Park Community Association and the Glenside Progressive Association are working together to create a sense of ‘village support’ across our neighbourhoods. Some areas of our communities are already well connected. Extending these networks is important in case of a significant emergency.
Venue: Churton Park School hall: 90 Churton Drive
Meeting 1: Thursday 11 August, 7pm - Why and how to respond as a community in an emergency.
Meeting 2: Thurs 25 August - Practical solutions to critical needs in an emergency.
Meeting 3: Thurs 8 September - Identifying and planning for future projects to fill gaps in our community preparedness.
We hope to see you all there. Spread the word!
