Civil Defence


Muster station is the Okura Community Hall.


Some years ago, an emergency "persons" checklist was set up by the Okura Ratepayers & Residents Association (ORRA) for all Okura Residents wanting to take part. This list was set up to ensure that residents in our Community can be contacted and accounted for should the need arise in a State of Emergency. Since then, the ORRA has created an Emergency Response Group (ERG) along with an Okura Neighbourhood response plan (NRR), overseen by the Auckland Council Civil Defence Team.

As personal details change or new residents come into Okura, we like to update the information in our database.

This list is not compulsory but we urge everyone to get behind this, for the safety of everyone's family. Should you wish to be involved, your information will be kept confidential within the ORRA Committee and will only be used in a situation that has been declared an "Emergency".
