Hobsonville Emergency Response Group
The Hobsonville Emergency Response Group is a volunteer group preparing for, responding to, and recovering from emergencies affecting our local area. It has a Lead Team, coordinated by Hobsonville Community Trust, that meets regularly and that will assess if the group will stand up in an emergency affecting our area.
During an emergency, the Lead Team may need help from volunteers from across the community to help set up a community hub/shelter or to respond to other needs.
