In the event of an emergency, the Shire's main role is to provide support and manage the recovery of the local community.
Western Australia suffers from both natural and man-made disasters and emergencies of various types, all of which have the potential to threaten life and property within the community.
Emergency management is a range of measures to manage risks in the community environment. It involves the structures, arrangements and plans established to pull together the efforts of government, voluntary and private agencies in a comprehensive and coordinated way to deal with the whole spectrum of emergency or disaster needs.
