Is your business ready for anything?  We can help.

The Northland Civil Defence Group, NZ Fire Service and Northland Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to provide free Business Continuity half- day workshops for small business owners and operators.


We’ve developed a Northland specific workbook that can help guide you through much of the planning process.

Presented in simple English, the workshops are designed to help you to create a plan for your business to respond and recover from an adverse event.

All attendees receive a complimentary satchel and booklet and the areas covered include:

  • What is a Business Continuity Plan?
  • What are the most likely risks to Northland?
  • What lessons have come from Christchurch small/medium business?
  • Assistance to complete individual BCP within the workshop

There is no cost to participants; however places are limited to 24 per workshop.


Workshops are held in all major Northland towns.
