The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Oxford will be buzzing with activity this weekend as Civil Defence Waimakariri hosts a large training exercise in the township.
The aim of the exercise is to practise coordinating a health and welfare response in following a large natural disaster. Civil Defence staff and volunteers will be joined by emergency services, Canterbury District Health Board, local health providers, Council Animal Management, Red Cross and staff from neighbouring councils.
Exercise Controller, Brennan Wiremu, says the public may notice a lot of activity in the Oxford-Cust area,
“Residents may notice emergency services operating, the use of a drone and volunteers roleplaying as casualties, however there’s no cause for concern.”
Brennan says the exercise is important for testing and enhancing a range of Civil Defence Welfare capabilities including the ability to work with local and national health providers.
The exercise will run on Saturday 27 July between 9am and 3pm, and the main operational areas will include the Oxford Town Hall, Fire Station and A&P Showgrounds.
Brennan says it’s also a good reminder for people to check their own emergency preparations are up to date, including refreshing their home’s survival kit and practicing their household emergency plan.
