The Shire 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 emergency needs, including prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.
The Shire’s Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC) is a committee established under the Emergency Management Act that advises and assists the Shire in ensuring that local emergency management arrangements are established for its district.
The LEMC membership draws on the Shire of Boyup Brook, WA Police Service, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, St John Ambulance, FESA Fire and Rescue Service and Department for Community Development.
An Emergency Management Evacuation Plan has also been created by the Shire of Boyup Brook to deal with bushfires, floods, severe weather, hazardous materials incident and civil disturbances?
