Emergency management

Local Land Services plays a crucial role in the delivery of emergency management in NSW.

Working alongside the NSW Department of Primary  Industries (NSW DPI) and other agencies, we provide a vital support service in emergencies where agriculture and animals are impacted.

Operating under a joint Emergency Management Strategic Plan, Local Land Services assists NSW DPI across a wide range of emergencies, including natural disasters such as flood, bushfire, drought and biosecurity events involving plants, animals and pest insects such as locust plagues.

We enhance the capacity of all landholders to plan and prepare for, respond to, and recover from  biosecurity emergencies and natural disasters.
