Wellington Emergency Management Office

The Wellington Emergency Management Office (WEMO) was formed in 2012. It is a semi-autonomous organisation that co-ordinates Civil Defence and Emergency Management services on behalf of the nine councils in the Wellington region. It is responsible for two key aspects of emergency management: community resilience, and operational readiness.
In the aftermath of the 22 February 2011 earthquake, a number of volunteers from WEMO travelled to Christchurch in order to help with the emergency response. This collection holds photographs taken by the WEMO volunteers and Urban Search and Rescue team while they were in Christchurch.
