Emergency Management Unit -EMU

The Emergency Management Unit-(EMU) provides whole of government advice and executive support to the State Emergency Management Committee and Regional Emergency Management Planning committees. It also takes the lead with much of the State’s emergency management planning and emergency risk management work.

We support the coordination of emergency management plans and policies identified by the Emergency Management Act 2006. This includes:

  • Municipal emergency management plans (maintained by municipal councils on behalf of the Municipal EM Committees)
  • Regional emergency management plans (north west, northern, southern)
  • The Tasmanian Emergency Management Arrangements (TEMA)
  • State Special Emergency Management Plans
  • State, regional and municipal emergency management policies.

SES EMU maintains the plan management system for these plans and provides advice and support to other government agencies who have other responsibilities related to emergency planning.
