Taupo Receiving, Over.
Weekly radio checks connect Taupo's Emergency Operating Centre to multiple communities, the Waikato Group Emergency Management Office in Hamilton and the Rotorua Hospital.
Checks are done every Wednesday morning by local volunteer Richard Rusk using a number of different radio systems.
Richard and the team kindly let us join them on a brisk Taupo Wednesday morning to give you a behind-the-scenes look.
