Emergency Management

If you have any emergency please call 000

During an emergency or severe weather event, visit TasALERT.com or listen to ABC Local Radio for the latest information and key communications. Visit the Tasmania Police website for information on road closures.


TasALERT is Tasmania's official emergency information source.  You can follow them on Facebook  or Twitter.

While rare, residents and the broader community may be directly impacted by bushfires, floods, storms, disruptions to essential services and transportation routes, biosecurity or public health emergencies.

Council collaborates with other agencies to assess risks associated with these events and establish measures to manage and mitigate their impact.

In some instances Council may act as a support agency, working alongside organisations like Tasmania Police, Tasmania Fire Service, State Emergency Service, and other specialised resources to respond effectively.

Below, you'll find general information to help you plan your response to emergency situations and access relevant information when needed.
