OEM launches Boundary Viewer

 ​

5 December 2017


The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) recently launched an online mapping solution that allows for the identification of various agency boundaries.


The GIS-based online mapping solution, known as OEM Boundary Viewer, was developed because the differences between boundaries of various agencies involved in emergency management (EM) can create confusion as to which regional office is responsible for a given area. 


As OEM Boundary Viewer is hosted on a corporate website, uptime cannot be guaranteed and it should therefore not be used during an emergency event. It is, however, an excellent tool for pre-planning purposes and will assist EM personnel in understanding the interplay between various agency boundaries.


OEM Boundary Viewer is available to EM personnel who have access to a District Emergency Management Committee (DEMC) portal on the OEM website. Go to: www.oem.wa.gov.au/Pages/OEMBoundaryViewer/BoundaryMapEntry
