Phone Trees and Sirens
In January 2018, a freak combination of atmospheric factors hit the Firth of Thames, and the Te Puru Community Response Group went into action.
Te Puru-based Michael Dobie is a Public Information Manager for emergencies at Thames-Coromandel District Council, and through the emergency period looked after the community while also looking after his family.
Michael caught up with members of the Te Puru Community Response Group to look back on the event. In part one of this series, group members shared surprising revelations about communication.
