Fire & Emergency Management

The West Australian government emergency management philosophy is one of ‘shared responsibility’ and local governments throughout WA play an important role in the state’s emergency management framework. This includes being responsible for:

  • managing and supporting local Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades;
  • issuing the annual Fire Management Notice;
  • preparing natural hazard risk assessment;
  • documenting local emergency management plans for the district,
  • establishing and maintaining a Local Emergency Management Committee; and
  • managing recovery following a disaster in the district.
