Engineering Emergency Management provides engineering expertise to help prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from the effects of the impacts of disasters on the community.

Under the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989 and the State Disaster Plan, Public Works Advisory (PWA) coordinates the Engineering Services Functional Area.

We provide engineering coordination, assistance and technical advice on a state and district basis to emergency combat agencies, including Police, Fire and Rescue, SES, and any other functional area involved in the response phase of emergencies.
