Whakatane Emergency Response Team
Whakatane Emergency Response Team (WERT) is a Council supported initiative. The team is made up of volunteers who train fortnightly and give up many of their weekends to enhance their rescue knowledge and skills.
The team has a qualified paramedic, and is proficient in rope and swift water rescue, flood response, and urban search and rescue. As well as keeping Whakatane district residents safe, the team can respond to national emergencies when required.
