The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) is responsible for the State Emergency Management Plan (SEMP), which sets out the state’s comprehensive emergency management arrangements.
It outlines a coordinated approach to address natural and man-made risks and emergencies across all sectors of the community, including state and local government, business, the non-government sector and individuals.
The SEMP is split in to four parts, some of which have subordinate documents and annexes.
Part 1: Executive Overview
Provides a strategic overview of the state’s arrangements for general information.
Part 2: Emergency Management Arrangements
Provides the overarching details of the arrangements and structures in place to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.
Part 3: Supporting Guidelines and Frameworks
Contains the guidelines and frameworks developed to detail the practices for key aspects of emergency management. These documents provide guidance regarding the development of arrangements, administrative functions and plans.

Part 4: Supporting Plans
Contains standards required of the various levels of detailed plans for implementing the arrangements, including review guidance and templates. It also includes the suite of supporting plans for implementing the arrangements.
