Regional plans and management
NSW has 11 emergency management regions made up of local government areas. Regional plans describe how emergencies are managed on a regional basis.
Regional emergency management committees
A regional committee is responsible for implementing emergency management policy and practice across each region. They:
- review and prepare plans for the region, including sub plans or supporting plans
- recommend and assist in the coordination of emergency management across their region
- develop, conduct and evaluate regional emergency management training exercises
- facilitate regional emergency management capability through interagency coordination, cooperation and information sharing arrangements.
