Agreements and arrangements between the different agencies involved in Emergency Management are documented in plans. These plans are then endorsed by the appropriate emergency management committee.
The NSW State Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN) is the document outlining the overall agreed roles and responsibilities of agencies.
Sub plans are produced by the authority with the primary responsibility for responding to the particular threat, for example, the State Flood Plan is produced by State Emergency Service and the State Bush Fire plan is produced by the Rural Fire Service.
Supporting plans are produced by the relevant Functional Area Sub Committee. The SEMC is responsible for reviewing State and Regional Emergency Management Plans.
Regional Emergency Management Plans are currently being reviewed.
