Supplementary supply at the municipal level occurs when functional services, or control authorities exhaust their own avenues of supply and there is a requirement for continued supply.
Requests for municipal resources should be made by the Incident Controller (or delegate) to the MERC. In partnership with the MERO, the MERC will endeavour to obtain those resources (council owned or sub-contracted) through existing municipal arrangements. If unsuccessful, the request will be passed from the MERC to the RERC, as per the following diagram.
