Emergency Management
The State Emergency Rescue and Management Act, 1989 Section 28 recognises that the involvement of local government in all stages of an emergency is critical.

Singleton Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC) is responsible for plans in relation to the prevention of, preparation for, response to, and recovery from emergencies in the Singleton local government area.

The legislation requires that the General Manager of Council or their nominee will chair the Committee.  The LEMC is made up of a senior representative of each emergency service organisation operating in the local government area and a representative of organisations providing services to the functional areas in the local government area.

Council is also required to provide executive support facilities for the Committee and the Local Emergency Operations Controller (LEOCON) and this support is provided by a senior officer of Council who is known as the Local Emergency Management Officer (LEMO).

In Singleton the local committee is made up of 18 organisations.  The Committee facilitate exercises as part of the preparation for response and recovery.

The Chairman of Singleton LEMC is Jason Linnane, General Manager and Council’s LEMO is Damian Morris, Manager Infrastructure Delivery.
