Local Governments have an essential role in Emergency Management due to their legislated responsibilities and links to the community.

The way emergencies are managed is critical to the safety and sustainability of communities, ensuring the effective functioning of the Local Government and their staff.

With an increase in emergencies impacting communities across all Local Government areas, it is appreciated globally that being prepared is fundamental. Now more than ever, Local Governments have acknowledged the necessity to be well informed and up to date in how they perform in the field of Emergency Management on behalf of their community.

To assist Local Governments in this critically important task, WALGA offer Emergency Management training courses ranging from introductory, progressing to Community Disaster Recovery.

All courses offer practical guidance and instructions in Emergency Management planning, risk, resource allocation and management, through to developing leadership skills to guide stakeholders in disaster situations across the broad range of emergencies which our communities face.

All of these courses are valuable in that they build connections and networks with members of other Local Governments across the State, further enhancing information sharing and building capacity.
