“Community recovery is the coordinated process of supporting emergency affected communities in the reconstruction and restoration of physical infrastructure, the environment and community, psychosocial and economic wellbeing" (Emergency Management Act 2005).

The Shire has plans and structures to bring together government, voluntary and private agencies in a coordinated way to deal with major emergencies through its Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC).                                            

Volunteers are an integral part of delivering emergency service activities within our Shire.
