In New Lynn, Fire Service and Police worked together to rescue 13 people from structures cut off by “white water” flood waters. Just one example of emergency services working together to help communities hit hard by severe flooding in the past week.
We responded to 582 emergency 111 calls yesterday. At the busiest point, our Communication Centre were answering one call every 24 seconds.

Our thanks to all emergency service agencies and local communities who have worked together to help with evacuations, flooded vehicles and property, and clearing debris from the road.
