Emergency Volunteering

Support your community during a crisis

How it works

Volunteers from all backgrounds play crucial roles in emergencies, such as community coordination, practical tasks, welfare support, logistics, intelligence services, and more. Engaging in emergency volunteering can be both fulfilling and demanding, making a tangible difference in times of crisis.

Volunteering Northland maintains a database of individuals willing to offer assistance during Civil Defence or other emergencies.

Would you like to help out? Here's how it works:

  • Fill out the application form with your contact information and the skills you can provide. (Applicants must be 18 years or older and reside in Northland Te Tai Tokerau.)
  • In the event of an emergency, your information is shared with Civil Defence or the relevant lead agency.
  • Depending on the situation, you may receive a request for assistance.
  • You have the flexibility to update your details or opt out at any time.
