Community Response (previously Civil Defence)
MERRA maintains an active Community Response Group affiliated with Auckland Council .
The purpose of the group is to prompt residents to be ready for a natural emergency and to be prepared for 3 days without power, road access , food and water.
Fergusson House on Ridge Road is also the assembly point in any emergency.

Scotts Landing have a neighbourhood support system where neighbours use a horn with three blasts repeatedly to attract neighbour’s attention. Should you hear three blasts on a horn, please attend urgently to assist. (See more and an order form for the horn below)
In An Emergency
First ensure that your household members are safe and also please check your neighbours. Establish a safe place where you can stay for the next three days and collect your requirements for “Getting Through”. If possible, please report to Fergusson House reporting station and advise any needs, injuries, resources, etc. Should your property not be habitable, then contact neighbours and if possible make your way to Fergusson House.
The MERRA CRG team have generators, BBQs, Lighting, First Aid kits, batteries, torches, radios, etc and can contact Auckland Emergency Management and other local area Police and CRG teams if required. Fergusson house provides some basic bedding and accommodation should this be required.
