Community members and groups have a role in preparing for emergencies that affect animals, plants and agriculture, and assisting to respond and recovery from adverse impacts.

Actions will vary depending on your risks and the emergencies that impact you, your animals, your property, your community and your industry.

  1. Plan before an emergency
  2. Act during an emergency
  3. Recover after an emergency

Organisations can apply to become a partner organisation and participate with NSW DPI Agriculture and Animal Services Functional Area.
