The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC) is Western Australia's peak emergency management body. The SEMC, supported by the SEMC Secretariat, seeks to develop the best emergency management (EM) arrangements in Australia through: 

  • Demonstrated capability across community and government that matches the EM risk as closely as practicable

  • Building and maintaining an emergency management framework based on a risk management approach

  • Promoting prepared​​​ness for emergencies to mi​​nimise their impact and accelerate recovery and

  • Providing advice to government on any matter in relation to EM.


The SEMC's key objectives in​​clude developing a comprehensive risk and capability profile for Western Australia and identifying capability gaps through incident analysis. Read more on RiskCapability​ - Impact​.
