As climate changes, Sydney is at greater risk to bushfire events. In an extreme bushfire events Sydney would not be able to cope due to our management hierarchy system. The solution will be to reconstruct our emergency management system. The new system will be more efficient in response time, true coordinated government hierarchy, accountability for each level of government involved and better allocated and multi skilled resources.

  • With the bush fire in Sydney as a catalyst to our real crisis – a melt down of the current emergency management structure. Here we can examine the current structure. (Explain the flow chart). When reading governemnt documents and policies explaining the workings of this structure its easy to believe in its strengths. However, looking at examples of it in action such as the Condell Park Fires, 2001-02 bush fires and other examples from Canberra, we can easily recognise flaws in its very foundation. Some of these flaws include its multi-leveled bottom up approach – situations are often allowed to esculate because of this. Its potential for conflict between resources from differebt LGA’s and states and even other nations. Its unclear levels of accountability for each level of the hierarchy. Basically who does what when. Planning at different levels which may conflict with each other.
  • To combat this potential for crisis we have decided on a new structure for the management of all emergencies. From this we have presented 3 different applications of this new structure.
  • This is a diagram showing the proposed re-structure. As you can see it is immediately simplified in its levels of beauracracy and provides clearer paths of communication and responsibility. (explain diagram)
  • One of the first applications of this new structure is the 2 LGA Policy. This policy relates to the greater clarity of responsibility of the new emergency management structure.
  • In the event of an emergency breeching, the boundary of an LGA, the responsibility of management of that event is passed onto the New State Emergency Governing Body. From this position this new body is better able to find and allocate resources from around the state (other LGAs). Thus stopping the escalation of the emergency. Since the training and allocation of resources is part of this new Bodys function, the locating of resources from other areas is easily done.
  • During our research in the past two weeks, we have come to understand the complex nature of governance. The restructuring of the emergency management structure will create a simpler, more coordinated and responsive system which in turn would result in limiting the impact of emergencies on lives and property.
