Montecito Emergency Response & Recovery Action Group

Building a resilient and self-reliant community.

MERRAG provides readiness awareness and training, neighborhood radio communications, and timely, accurate
official information as a reliable community ally.

MERRAG  (pronounced "mirage") is a network of trained volunteers who live and/or work in the Montecito area. Members are prepared to respond to a community disaster during the critical first 72 hours following an event. Since 1987, the mutual “self-help” organization has served Montecito’s 9,000 residents with the guidance and support of the Montecito Fire, Water and Sanitary Districts.
