Emergency Management


In the event of an accident where a serious or life threatening injury has occurred, contact 000 in the first instance.

An emergency incident can occur at any time, usually with little or no warning, causing major interruption and often causing threatening situations in the community. Tatiara District Council is committed to ensuring it has a safe and resilient community.

Whilst Council is not the lead agency to respond to any emergency, we have a support role for a range of natural emergencies such as bushfires, floods and severe storms.
