The City of Perth works closely with the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and is a member of the District Emergency Management Committee (DEMC).  Together emergency management arrangements are developed and updated, and exercises conducted to ensure the City, Government and Community Agencies are prepared for emergencies that may occur in the City of Perth and surrounding areas.

The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) is the peak emergency management body in Western Australia.  Membership includes representatives appointed by the Minister for Emergency Services from those organisations that are essential to the State's emergency management arrangements.

Additional Information for adjoining local governments is available in the Western Central Local Emergency Management Arrangements.
