NSW State Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN)

The EMPLAN provides a strategic overview of emergency management in New South Wales. The EMPLAN has been prepared with input from all New South Wales Government agencies that have responsibilities and functions in disaster response and recovery.

It is supported by Sub Plans and Supporting Plans which detail the response to specific hazards and the roles and responsibilities of specific New South Wales Government Agencies.

The EMPLAN is issued under the authority of the Minister for Emergency Services pursuant to the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989. The plan is maintained by the Office of Emergency Management on behalf of the State Emergency Management Committee.
