Emergency Management (EM) arrangements in Western Australia are established through the following legislative and policy framework, which incorporates the following suite of SEMC documents. Each document needs to be read in context of the other documents within the framework.
The OEM has implemented a document version control system for the EM Documents. The current version of the documents is v1.2. The version number has been added to the front cover and right hand side of each document footer. Details of amendments to the suite of documents are available on the Policy Amendments page. This page also shows the history of amendments for the suite of documents.
EM in WA is underpinned by the State Emergency Management Act 2005 (the EM Act) and the State Emergency Management Regulations 2006.
In support of policy and procedures, the SEMC Secretariat, has developed useful and relevant guidelines.
