Emergency Management

For media statements and alerts see the following sections:

 In this section:

Marlborough District Council is responsible for emergency services such as Civil Defence and also responds to emergencies like oil spills in the Marlborough Sounds. Council monitors river flows and rainfall, and has a major role in alleviating flood situations to reduce harm and threat to life, property and infrastructure.

The standard 111 emergency phone number applies for road accidents, fires, and medical and other general emergencies.

Are You Prepared For An Emergency?

It may not be a major disaster such as an earthquake or flood. Imagine if the power went out for a prolonged period of time -  could you cope? What would be the impact on you and your family? No heating, no cooking unless you have gas, no Eftpos, no fuel, and no lights.  Shops would have to close due to health and safety issues and the list goes on.
