The City of Bunbury has developed plans and structures to bring together government, voluntary, and private agencies in a coordinated way to deal with major emergencies through its Local Emergency Management Committee. Plans cover the whole spectrum of hazards, including prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.
The City of Bunbury Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC) is a committee established under the Emergency Management Act that advises and assists the City in ensuring that local emergency management arrangements are established and maintained for its district.
The LEMC membership draws on the City of Bunbury, WA Police, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, St John Ambulance, State Emergency Service and Fire and Rescue Service to name a few.
An Emergency Management Evacuation Plan has also been created by the City of Bunbury, to deal with bushfires, floods, severe weather, hazardous materials incident, terrorist and civil disturbances.
