Sign up for emergency text alerts

Rotorua residents can now sign up to receive free civil defence emergency text alerts. The alerts will let you know if there’s a significant emergency in the region.

You won’t get inundated with texts as the system is only used for significant threats to life or property where time is critical. The media, website and social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter will continue to be used for other alerts, warnings and general information.
