Emergency Response Coordinators

The Ministry has contracted Emergency Response Coordinators (ERC) who are available 24/7 to respond to property related damage as the result of a disaster such as fire, flood and extreme weather.

Overview

The ERC will work with the school and the Ministry to coordinate the response effort with the relevant emergency services (Fire Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) or Police). The ERC will inspect the damage and arrange any urgent work to be done in order to make the site safe and get the school functioning as quickly as possible.
