Council works with emergency services and other agencies to deal with all types of emergencies.
This includes helping to prevent, plan for, deal with and recover from emergencies such as bushfires, floods, storms, tsunamis, extreme heat and public health pandemics.
Emergency Information Dashboard
Our Sutherland Shire dashboard provides local, real-time incident and emergency information. You’ll also find resources to help you prepare for and respond to emergencies.
The site is hosted on Disaster Dashboards and pulls information from all major agencies.
If you are in a life-threatening situation call 000.
Formal plans for emergencies
Council also coordinates the review and update of the local Emergency Management Plan (EMPLAN).
