Purpose:

LEMA is developed to provide a community focused, coordinated approach to the management of all potential emergencies within a local government area. It is a requirement for each local government in Western Australia to provide access to their LEMA and to publish on their website.

Objective:
Local governments are key players in the State’s emergency management arrangements and provide expert knowledge about their communities and environments. It is their role to ensure that local emergency management arrangements are prepared and maintained, as well as to manage recovery after an emergency.
About:

The functions of a Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC), in relation to its district or the area for which it is established, are:

  • to advise and assist the local government in ensuring that Local Emergency Management Arrangements (LEMAs) are established for its district
  • to liaise with public authorities and other persons in the development, review and testing of the LEMA; and to carry out other emergency management activities as directed by the SEMC or prescribed by the regulations.
