MBIE has released a guide to help territorial authorities manage buildings in an emergency.
This guide describes the roles and responsibilities of central and local government, and of other agencies, for managing buildings in an emergency using the 4Rs framework – Readiness, Response, Recovery and Reduction.
It explains what is required for managing buildings in an emergency, and provides detailed steps and checklists to help territorial authorities plan for and carry out rapid building assessments.
The guide is in three parts:
- Part A: How buildings are managed in an emergency and who is responsible
- Part B: Preparing for and managing buildings in an emergency
- Part C: Appendices – references and resources for managing buildings in an emergency, including readiness and response checklists.
