Yesterday a "Hub Activation" exercise was held in the foyer of the Events Centre. The Hub kicks in after an emergency event as a coordination centre for dealing with the aftermath of a serious and severe event (e.g. major earthquake, flooding etc).

The Activation was run as a part of Project Connect a collaboration between Carterton District Council, WREMO, Resilient Carterton and Neighbourhood Support to develop Carterton's preparedness for an adverse event.
