Community Hubs

What is a Community Emergency Hub?

In a disaster, emergency services will likely be dealing with the most urgent matters, so the people you live nearest to will be your most immediate, and ongoing, source of support.

A Community Emergency Hub is a place where you and your neighbours can go to help each other in a major emergency. There are 17 hubs across the Wairarapa region. They are located at community facilities and some schools and can be opened by keyholders living in the local area.
