Civil Defence Centres/ Community Emergency Hubs

Civil Defence Centres / Community Emergency Hubs provide a local point within communities where people can go to to seek help or offer help depending on their circumstances following a civil emergency. Civil Defence Centres are referred to as Welfare Centres or Community Emergency Hubs.

During a Civil Defence Emergency, the location of centres that are open are likely to be broadcast over the radio and a link will be provided on your council’s / emergency management home webpage.   The following are links to the main regional Emergency Management pages
