  Abstract New Plymouth cityís water supply infrastructure suffered major damage as Ex-Tropical Cyclone Gita passed over New Zealand on 20 February 2018. By 1950 hours a State of Local Emergency had been declared due to the disruption of the drinking water supply in New Plymouth and power supply across the region. This report focuses on the feedback received by the Taranaki CDEM Group Public Information Management team following activation of the Emergency Mobile Alert (EMA) system on the evening of Wednesday 21 February 2018, to warn people in New Plymouth District that tap water must be boiled. The report gives a practitionerís insight into making the decision to send one of New Zealandís first EMAs and the subsequent handset issues experienced by members of the public with this new system, including various misunderstandings about how the EMA system works.
