TCDC Emergency Alerts

Our Council has teamed up with Waikato Civil Defence Emergency Management Group to launch our new all hazards emergency alerting tool.

We can now warn you of any local hazard that might impact your life or property. This tool works in conjunction with other alerting methods such as Emergency Mobile Alerts (EMA) and Red Cross Hazards App. 

Simply sign up, subscribe to your area, and select your preferred method of contact in the event of an emergency.

In an area with poor connectivity? TCDC Emergency Alerts offers a landline voice call service for anyone with unreliable mobile and internet coverage.

I’m leaving the district and no longer wish to receive TCDC Emergency Alerts, how do I unsubscribe?

What happens if I don’t answer or miss the phone call/ voice alert? 

TCDC Emergency Alerts will continue to call for a specified amount of time, or until someone picks up. This will improve the chances that the message is recieved. 

How is TCDC Emergency Alerts different from the other emergency alerting tools?

This additional alerting tool enables us to now alert communities with unreliable mobile and internet access. All the other alerting methods (EMA and Red Cross Hazards App) are still available and reliable.
