Under section 38 of the Emergency Management Act 2005, we are required to establish a Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC). The LEMC must be managed and chaired by the City of Swan with representation from organisations and agencies that play a key role in emergency management within their district.
The functions of a LEMC are:
- To advise and assist the local government in ensuring that Local Emergency Management Arrangements are established for its district.
- To liaise with public authorities and other persons in the development, review and testing of the LEMA.
- To carry out other emergency management activities as directed by the SEMC or prescribed by the regulations.
