Integrated Recovery Team

Following the regional response to Covid-19, led by Whanganui District Health Board with district-wide response led by Rangitīkei Civil Defence Emergency Management, an Integrated Recovery Team (IRT) has been established.

Rangitīkei District Council is working closely with Whanganui District Council, Ruapehu District, Whanganui District Health Board and a wide range of organisations, iwi and government agencies on the long-term recovery of the region.

An integrated plan for local recovery is being developed as we engage with people and share information with partner organisations across our communities.

The current focus of the team is to collect and evaluate information gathered from and by people and organisations throughout our region, while also addressing immediate needs and opportunities.
