Emergency & Disaster Resilience Pods

Building Resilient Communities, Together. 

Innovative Emergency & Disaster Pod in New Zealand

Redefine Emergency Preparedness and Resilience

We are proud to introduce an innovative range of modular readiness and resilience solutions that your community can rely upon during natural disasters, emergencies, and climate change events.  Our purpose-built emergency and disaster resilience pods (EPODs) are built with our communities in mind and work to establish an accessible and centralised emergency response capability directly within your community.

 

Our EPODs are designed and built by professional engineers, made from high-quality materials and fittings, and can be delivered to your community, anywhere in New Zealand.   

How We Deliver Resilience

A New Approach

It's now time for change.


Navigating the intricate vulnerabilities faced by our communities remains challenging. However, EPOD stands as a catalyst for real change, addressing our current vulnerabilities head on.

01

SOLUTION 1

Bridging the critical under-preparedness gap

Our EPODs are designed to bridge the critical under-
preparedness gap by creating an accessible, centralised, and comprehensive solution that our communities can depend on – empowering them with the knowledge, resources, and confidence needed to successfully navigate emergencies.

02

SOLUTION 2

Mitigating the frequency & severity of disaster events

Our innovative EPOD system is not reactive but proactive, enabling our communities to forward-think and proactively address long-term risks. Our EPODs are designed to go beyond immediate response mechanisms and provide a long- term sustainable solution for our future generations. By uniquely establishing a directly accessible and centralised capability within our communities, we enable them to anticipate challenges and to evolve, adapt, and overcome.

03

SOLUTION 3

Innovating a new revolutionary approach

Our EPODs are not merely a product. They represent much more – the innovation of a new revolutionary approach. Our independent and pragmatic solution fosters cohesion, encourages active community participation, and enables self-preservation and self-sufficiency – without the reliance on anyone else or any other means. With EPOD, our communities are not left fragmented, but are instead left united by the confidence to face adversity head-on.

Our EPODs Built to Last

Our purpose-built emergency and disaster resilience pods (EPODs) are built with our communities in mind and work to establish an accessible and centralised emergency response capability directly within your community. In doing so, our EPODs provide a critical lifeline that your community can rely upon during natural disasters, emergencies, and climate change events.  

 

All our EPODs are designed and built using modular and prefabricated components, which allows for controlled costs and fast turnaround times.  Built to withstand New Zealand’s toughest environments, our highly customisable EPODs are built by professional engineers, made with high-quality materials and fittings, and can be delivered to any community, anywhere in New Zealand.

As flooding becomes more frequent and the threat looms of the Alpine Fault rupturing, 24 marae in the South Island are getting prepared.


Emergency pods worth tens of thousands of dollars are being installed and equipped with essential items, all funded by Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and Te Puni Kōkiri. The refurbished shipping containers are being rolled out across Te Waipounamu, from Bluff to Kaikōura

 

David Ormsby from Te Puni Kōkiri said the containers will be provisioned to cater for each individual marae.

 

"Some marae might need more preparations for earthquakes, others for flooding."

He added the pods will help the marae be prepared, rather than be "ambushed" by a natural disaster.
