Emergencies and disasters

During an emergency or disaster it's important to know who you can call for help, or how you can get the latest update on emergency situations.

Arrangements for, prevention of, preparation for, response to and recovery from emergencies with the Maitland Local Government Area are covered by the Maitland Local Emergency Management Plan


When disaster hits, NSW Government and emergency management agencies will try to help but you need to get ready as well. Every year flood, fire and other disasters affect peoples' lives and may cause millions of dollars in property damage. Being prepared can save lives and help you and your family make better decisions when disaster strikes.

Are you ready?
