About Local Emergency Management

The Local Emergency Management Committee is responsible for the preparation of plans in relation to the prevention of, preparation for, response to, and recovery from emergencies in The Hills Shire Local Government Area.

Emergency management is not a choice for Local Government – it's a legislative requirement. For information on the NSW State Emergency Management Structure visit the Ministry of Police and Emergency Services website.

The NSW Disaster Preparedness website provides a range of information to help the community get ready for fires, floods and storms.
