Applications SELWYN TIMES Tuesday November 22 2016 7 News FOR THE 2017 ABOUT 15 district council staff have been helping out with the earthquake response in North Canterbury. They have been working in the region since Monday last week, when the 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck near Culverden. The quake has been followed by a series of significant aftershocks. The district council’s incident command bus has also been in North Canterbury for the week, being used by response teams working in Waiau. The bus is designed to be used at significant rural fires or emergencies and is equipped with Wi-Fi and radio communications. District council staff trained in emergency management have also been rostered on this week to assist with incident coordination. Four building staff have been assisting with building inspections in Waiau, with two other staff working in welfare management roles. Community resilience coordinator Jason Flewellen was also among the staff who spent time in North Canterbury. He and another staff member took the bus to Waiau, with 20 New Zealand Response Team members from Christchurch. “The response team managed to visit 130 properties to complete rapid impact assessments on the day. Some of the houses there had major damage and there were people who were understandably ON THE JOB: Selwyn’s incident command bus being used by a New Zealand Response Team in Waiau.

Our role was to respond to requests for assistance and resolve them or refer them to local civil defence headquarters to be actioned if needed.” Several Selwyn volunteers from community response teams also offered to assist with the earthquake response and were placed on standby to support evacuees from Kaikoura and other affected areas at Canterbury welfare centres. Mayor Sam Broughton said it was great to see the community was helping in practical ways, with groups in Rolleston and Darfield collecting supplies for the response.
