Resilience NSW is the agency that coordinates disaster relief and recovery operations in NSW and gives support to councils. 

Resilience NSW works closely with council, establishes evacuation centres, recovery centres and recovery committees, and coordinates the analysis of impact assessment data.

Resilience NSW works with the Commonwealth Government to coordinate Commonwealth support and activation of special recovery funds. 

Councils play a key role in leading communities through disasters and are a trusted and important source of information for locals.
