How to use our web Information & Emergency Situation Map

Did you know that our situation map is loaded with useful information about specific hazards in Southland?

  • By simply clicking on the icon that looks like a stack of papers, “Layers List” (see fig 1) you get to open the layers feature which allows you to activate different layers on the map.
  • By ticking e.g. Tsunami Evacuation Zones (fig 2), you will see the map update with evacuation zones.
  • Zoom into the Invercargill/Riverton area and you will see the evacuation zones (fig 3).
  • Untick a layer to remove it from the map. This feature is very handy if you want to zoom in a specific area and get more useful information.

Click on the “Legend” icon (right of Layers icon see fig 4) and find out what all the symbols mean on the map.

Erm. Best..? Really?

A COVID-19 update from the team at EMS

It has been fantastic to see Southlanders focused on the transition back to a degree of normality – albeit with some important restrictions still in place.

While it sure is reassuring to have no new COVID-19 cases confirmed in the past 11 days, we all still have a role to play in keeping it that way by adhering to the Alert Level 2 guidelines.

The reality is the impact of this pandemic will be ongoing for quite some time so remember help remains available from a range of organisations. 

Our Emergency Management Southland assistance line for those directly affected by Covid 19 is now being monitored between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively you can contact us by email at covid19@cdsouthland.nz.

If you require financial assistance, you can reach Work and Income on 0800 559 009.

If you have been temporarily displaced from your home due to Covid-19, you can call MBIE’s temporary accommodation service on 0508 754 163 to register.

Unsure what assistance you require? The government helpline is available on 0800 779 997 or head to www.covid19.govt.nz.

Kia kaha Southland. #strongertogether
