Have you packed your emergency Kit?
Having an emergency kit will help your family prepare for an emergency.
It provides essential items for your family’s short term survival whether you choose to stay at home or need to relocate to a safer place before, during or after a natural hazard such as cyclone, storm, flood and bushfire.

Community involvement is vital to Emergency Risk Management. Initiatives have been and will continue to be undertaken by the Shire of Harvey as part of the All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) program sponsored by the Fire and Emergency Services Authority (FESA).
The AWARE program has established new Emergency Management Arrangements for the Shire that will be effective in reducing the impact of disasters on the community.
The Shire encourages the support of residents and businesses as it provides an opportunity to increase safety and well-being of the community.
Please contact the Administrator of Law and Safety Services for further information.
The State Emergency Service (SES) is available to assist residents in times of emergency or disaster. Lost persons, storm damaged property and major bush fires are some of the occurrences attended.
In regional areas, a call to 131 444 will be automatically transferred to your local police station. Always call 000 in case of an emergency.
