Feedback on the Draft Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Plan 2016-2021

 

File No.: CP2016/01868

 

  

Purpose

1.       To seek feedback from the Youth Advisory Panel (the Panel) as experts, and members of their community, on the Draft Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Plan.

Executive Summary

2.    Auckland Council is required under the Civil Defence and Emergency Management Act (2002) to develop and review the direction for civil defence and emergency activities within Auckland through a five yearly review of the Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Group Plan. The current CDEM Group Plan for Auckland is due to expire in June 2016.

3.    A draft Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Group Plan 2016-2021 (draft Group Plan) has been developed for consultation (a copy is appended as Attachment A). The draft Group Plan is primarily centred on community empowerment and resilience across all environments (social, economic, environmental and infrastructure). 

4.    This report asks the Panel to provide feedback on the draft Group Plan.

 

Recommendation

That the Youth Advisory Panel:

a)      Provides formal feedback on the draft Civil Defence and Emergency Management Group Plan 2016-2021.

Comments

5.    The Auckland CDEM Group is a statutory committee of Auckland Council as required under section 12 of the CDEM Act. The CDEM Group has overall responsibility for the provision of CDEM within Auckland. It comprises five elected members of the Auckland Council and a number of co-opted observers from CDEM agencies invited by the committee to attend.

6.    The CDEM Group has delegated authority to develop, approve, implement, and monitor the CDEM Group Plan. The purpose of the Group Plan is to enable the effective, efficient and coordinated delivery of CDEM across Auckland while building a resilient Auckland with our communities. All CDEM groups are required every five years to consult on the development of group plans under the CDEM Act (2002). The current Group Plan for Auckland expires at the end of June 2016.

7.    The draft Group Plan has been developed as a framework for action which will form the basis for more detailed business planning and development of civil defence and emergency management work programmes. The key framework areas for consultation are:


·   Knowledge through education

·   Volunteer participation

·   Emergency Management planning

·   Business and organisational resilience

·   Strong partnerships

·   Response capability and capacity

·   Information and communications technologies

·   Build Back better

·   A safe city

·   Research

·   Building resilient communities


8.       Like the rest of the populace, all aspects of life for young people are affected in an emergency.  This report seeks the panel’s feedback, both as experts in youth community matters and as members of their community, to help generate a clearer picture of considerations important to the young people in CDEM planning.

9.       In terms of communicating prior and during an emergency, the panel suggested a broader social media approach using community Facebook pages, as well as the CDEM Facebook page. The panel also highlighted the importance of a dedicated person to manage social media presence, and that it not be seen as an ‘add on’ to an existing role. The panel also highlighted the broader potential of technology in planning and response (such as through games and apps). This contrasted with feedback from the Seniors Advisory Panel who noted the importance of information hubs in physical locations to their community.

10.     In referencing the response by young people and students during the Canterbury earthquakes, the panel suggested there may be a role for young people in helping communities in emergencies.

11.     Similarly to feedback received from the Ethnic Peoples Advisory Panel, the panel had questions about how CDEM engages with international students who may not have physical or familial connections in New Zealand. A concern of the panel was the transient nature of young people, and that this would impact on emergency planning at the household level.

12.     Public consultation timelines on the draft Group Plan is from 15 February to 18 April 2016 with significant consultation as part of the Have your Say annual plan events. The final Group Plan is due to be formally adopted by the CDEM Committee in August 2016.

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

13.     Local board portfolio holders have been briefed on issues relevant to the draft Group Plan and, on their recommendation, workshops were held with 20 of the local boards in October 2015.  The results of these workshops helped formulate relevant sections of the draft Group Plan. 

14.     Local board views on the draft Group Plan will be sought in February and March 2016 through a report on their business meeting agendas. Subject to consultation, the Group Plan indicates a wider role for local boards in emergency management.

Māori impact statement

15.  Māori will have the opportunity to submit on the draft Group Plan during the statutory consultation phase.

16.  In addition, the CDEM department are developing a Māori Responsiveness Plan to support a more proactive approach to engaging iwi and mataawaka in emergency management planning.

Implementation

17.  The draft Group Plan is to be adopted by the CDEM Committee in August 2016.  The Group Plan is also provided to the Ministry of Civil Defence and Emergency Management for review.
