Change to Wellington Regional Emergency Management Office (WREMO) notification of emergencies
WREMO has changed the way it notifies residents of serious emergencies, eg, Earthquake and Tsunami warnings.
Please see instructions below to ensure you continue receive such warnings through your mobile phone.
WREMO has closed its Twitter alert system because people with Vodafone could not receive the alerts. Instead, WREMO
is promoting the Red Cross Hazard app.
What is the app?
For more information see the Red Cross Website: Hazard App
Download the app
Go to the Google Play Store or the Apple Play Store.
You can monitor up to five locations and determine what alerts you wish to receive from each location
What alerts will I receive?
WREMO will only issue alerts when there is a threat to life or a significant disruption that could affect the whole
or part of the Wellington region
What to do if you get an emergency alert
Follow the advice in the alert and make sure you are safe. Then make sure your family, friends, and neighbours
are safe by sharing the information on social media or text.
