In event of an emergency, the main role of the City of Stirling is to manage the local community recovery.
Emergency management involves the structures, arrangements and plans established to pull together the efforts of government, voluntary and private agencies, in a comprehensive and coordinated way to deal with all emergency or disaster needs.
Under the Emergency Management Act 2005, local governments are required to ensure emergency management 'arrangements' are prepared for their district, these local emergency management arrangements (LEMA) must include a 'recovery plan'.
The City of Stirling Local Emergency Management Arrangements (LEMA) have been endorsed by both the Local Emergency Management Committee, and the State Emergency Management Committee Secretariat.
Please note, the LEMA appendices undergo regular review and contain both private and confidential information. If you have an inquiry related to these documents, please contact the City's Emergency Management Coordinator using the email address below, or by contacting the City on (08) 9205 8555.
