Emergencies are an inherent part of the Australian environment. While we cannot prevent events such as floods, storms and earthquakes, we can all take action to minimise the risks they pose to our community.

In the state of South Australia, there are dedicated lead agencies for each hazard/emergency. The list below shows some of the hazards we may face and which agency is in charge. 

Types of emergency 

Bushfire – Country Fire Service

Urban Fire – Metropolitan Fire Service

Storms and flood – State Emergency Service

Extreme heat – State Emergency Service

Earthquake – South Australia Police


RediPlan emergency preparedness sessions - cancelled

18 March 2020 - These events have been cancelled due to state and federal government advice on COVID-19. For more information on Council's response to COVID-19 and other affected services, programs and events visit this page

Emergencies can strike at any time. They can damage and in some cases destroy homes and valuables. They often have negative effects on health, they upset routines, and in many cases they can lead to significant financial burden.

Discover how you can get prepared for an emergency at a RediPlan Emergency Preparedness workshop session.
