Emergency Management

AlburyCity's Local Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN) has been prepared by the Albury Local Emergency Management Committee in compliance with the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989.

The plan details arrangements for prevention of, preparation for, response to and recovery from emergencies within the AlburyCity area. It helps to ensure the coordinated response to emergencies by all agencies having responsibilities and functions in emergencies.

The plan covers preparedness measures, the conduct of response operations and immediate recovery measures for emergencies. It encompasses arrangements for:

  • incidents controlled by combat agencies
  • support to combat agencies in their single service roles
  • emergency operations for which there is no combat agency; and
  • circumstances where a combat agency has passed control to the Local Emergency Controller.

Neighbourhood safer places

Since 2010, the NSW Rural Fire Service has been managing the Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP) program across New South Wales. The NSP concept evolved out of the 2009 Victorian Bush Fires Royal Commission. The primary purpose of a NSP is the protection of human life. Their function is to provide a place of last resort for members of the community to shelter during a bush fire.
