Managing emergencies, to safeguard the NSW economy, environment and community, involves prevention and preparedness to minimise the impact of emergencies, responding to emergency incidents and conducting recovery operations.
Personnel participating in emergencies on behalf of DPI are required to be trained, maintain currency of their skills, follow policies and procedures, and maintain a safe workplace for themselves, fellow workers and the community.
