Local Emergency Management Committee

Section 39 of the Emergency Management Act 2005 (Functions of local emergency management committees) provides the functions of a local emergency management committee are, in relation to its district or the area for which it is established —
(a) to advise and assist the local government in ensuring that local emergency management arrangements are established for its district;
(b) to liaise with public authorities and other persons in the development, review and testing of local emergency management arrangements; and
(c) to carry out other emergency management activities as directed by the SEMC or prescribed by the regulations.

Note: LEMCs are an emergency planning body and although they will often incorporate members from operational (HMA, combat and support) agencies their role is not operational or one of response.
