State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC)

The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) is Western Australia’s peak emergency management body.

The SEMC strategises, organises and oversees the coordination and continuous improvement of emergency management in Western Australia by:

  • promoting shared understanding and responsibility across whole of government and the wider community;
  • establishing an emergency management framework based on a risk management approach;
  • promoting preparedness for emergencies to minimise their impact and accelerate recovery; and
  • providing advice to government on any matter in relation to emergency management.

The SEMC Secretariat provides a range of services and administrative support to the SEMC.
