Emergency Management Plan

The Campbelltown Local Emergency Management Plan(PDF, 1MB) (EMPLAN) has been prepared and issued by the Campbelltown Local Emergency Management Committee in accordance with Section 29 (1) of the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989, as amended.

The EMPLAN has been developed with the assistance combat agencies (NSW Rural Fire Service, NSW State Emergency Service and NSW Police etc). The Campbelltown Local Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN) has been endorsed by the South West Regional Emergency Management Committee.

The EMPLAN covers key actions and processes which must be followed in the event of an emergency, these being:

  • Roles and responsibilities of combat agencies
  • Prevention and mitigation in relation to sources of risk
  • Preparation for an emergency event
  • Control and coordination during an emergency event
  • Response arrangements in an emergency event
  • Recovery arrangements during and after an emergency event.

Due to the sensitive nature of some of the information contained in the EMPLAN, some of the pages are not available to the general public.
