Preparing for an emergency

Western Australia faces a range of natural and man-made hazards, many of which have the potential to threaten life, cause injury, damage property and the environment.

Local government is the level of government closest to the community and is best placed to ensure appropriate plans and systems are in place. In recognising this, the City of Fremantle is committed to ensuring the safety of our residents.

Evacuation centres

Local venues that may be used as evacuation centres are:

If you need to evacuate, first seek shelter with family or friends. The Department of Communities is responsible for the opening and management of an evacuation centre. Its location will depend on the nature and extent of the incident. The details of the nominated centre will be published in official warnings.


The City is responsible for the recovery of affected individuals, communities and infrastructure following an emergency. Recovery begins with the response from the Hazard Management Agents (HMAs).Information on the recovery process and available services may be published here.

The City will also relay public information messages via its website, Facebook and Twitter

Emergency management committees

The City promotes local emergency planning and preparedness through the Local Emergency Management Committee. Together emergency management arrangements are developed, updated, and exercises conducted to ensure the City, Governments and Community Agencies are prepared for emergencies that may occur in the City of Fremantle and surrounding areas.

In the event an emergency or large-scale incident should occur and in meeting our legislated responsibilities under the Emergency Management Act 2005, the City has developed local emergency plans.(LEMP)
