Office of Security and Emergency Management

The Office of Security and Emergency Management supports whole-of-government strategies to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from, emergencies arising from acts of terrorism, natural disasters and other emergencies. The primary focus of the Office is to assist with the implementation of Council of Australian Government (COAG) reforms in the areas of natural disasters and counter terrorism.

The role of the Office includes:

  • Working with all government agencies to ensure that Tasmania maintains a contemporary and well-understood framework for the prevention, preparedness, response to, and recovery from, acts of terrorism or natural or man-made disasters
  • Providing support for the development and maintenance of plans and capabilities that underpin the State's arrangements for the prevention of, preparedness for, response to, and recovery from, acts of terrorism or natural or man-made disasters
  • Continuing the focus on counter-terrorism and emergency management issues, in particular those actions arising from the agreements of the Council of Australian Governments
  • Providing ongoing support for Tasmania’s representatives on the National Counter Terrorism Committee (NCTC) and the Australian and Emergency Management Committee.
