Response Teams

ResponseTeamResponse Teams (NZ RT’s) provide qualified responders to support Civil Defence Emergency Management Groups and their communities during an emergency event. The teams train regularly to provide specialised support alongside emergency services.  Response teams perform a variety of functions, including light urban search and rescue, storm response and rescue and flood response and rescue.
