Mackenzie District emergency plan

The Mackenzie District is a large area that includes Cannington, Albury, Fairlie, Kimbell, Burkes Pass, Lake Tekapo, Lake Alexandrina settlements, Twizel and Aoraki Mt Cook and the rural areas between. There are approximately 5500 residents in the district, however those numbers can double with international and domestic travellers during parts of the year.

There are many natural hazards that can affect all parts of the district, including: earthquakes, floods, landslides, snowstorms, lake tsunamis, wild fire, and extreme storms.

In New Zealand emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere, often without warning, and can disrupt our lives, damage property and cause serious harm.

When an emergency does happen, Civil Defence and emergency services will be busy helping the people who need them most. It’s important that you make sure your family and the people you care about know what to do, and that you all have what you need to get through on your own.
