Creating a mission critical website
for Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group

The Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group (ACDEMG) comprises of the Auckland Council working in partnership with emergency services and other organisations to ensure the effective delivery of civil defence emergency management within its area.

The aim of the Auckland CDEMG is to co-ordinate all planning activities related to hazard and emergency management, encourage co-operation and joint action within the region, determine the aspirations of our community and examine the risks that hazards may pose to the goals, and prioritise each hazard.


ACDEMG wanted to deliver a new website to make best use of technology to meet their objective of building better community resilience in the great Auckland region. Key requirements of the website included:

  • Provide a platform to update Civil Defence status

  • Update and manage the website in-house


OneClick was selected by Auckland Civil Defence Emergency Management Group (ACDEMG) to build their new website and associated online systems. OneClick worked closely with the council to develop an online strategy, scoping the technology requirements, designing the database structure and website. Key functionality of the website included:

  • Automatic email alert generation

  • Media Release generator

  • Archiving facility

  • Easy to use CMS

  • Tsunami Map feature

  • Emergency Status page which is a unique source of up to date information about the current situation in the Auckland area.


The end result was a new website delivered on time and on budget. The Emergency status page was something that had not been done before and was rewarding to be involved in something that is potentially of great benefit to all Aucklanders.
