Rescue and emergency management

Agreements and arrangements between the different agencies involved in emergency management are documented in plans.

Emergency management plans

How we manage emergencies by region
How we manage a specific hazard or event type

These plans:

  • clarify roles and responsibilities across all command, control and coordination functions
  • emphasise risk management in prevention, preparation, response and recovery phases of an emergency
  • maximise community engagement in the development and exercise of plans.
