The South Island Tier 3 Alpine Fault Exercise Rū Whenua Whakariterite will take place on Friday 22 November 2019.

Rū Whenua Whakariterite | Prepare for Earthquake.

The South Island CDEM Groups have often facilitated a series of table-top/functional exercises for their respective CDEM Group areas. The 2010/2011 Canterbury earthquake and 2016 Kaikōura earthquake events, together with resulting discussions between the six CDEM Groups in the South Island, identified a need to advance a 2019 exercise scenario that would support all South Island CDEM Groups to assess and strengthen inter and intra CDEM Group coordination. The Ministry of Civil Defence Emergency Management is taking part in this exercise.

Exercise Rū Whenua Whakariterite (administered on behalf of the South Island Groups by the Canterbury CDEM Group) has been designed to provide a credible scenario that would have a significant impact on the whole of the South Island, and would enable the six South Island CDEM Groups to meet their common aim.
