 Abstract: The purpose of this project is to provide a gap analysis and critical review of the Bay of Plenty’s (BOP) current suite of warning public alerting tools and to assess the suitability of other alerting tool options for use across the region. Past events and testing of BOP Civil Defence and Emergency Management (CDEM) Group systems have identified that some mechanisms have a considerable delay in reaching the public (i.e. email alerting) and, during periods of high loads, text alerting has limited capacity to reach people quickly. Public feedback following events and tests are consistent in a call for an improved suite of alerting tools. (auth)
