Emergency management

Emergency events can occur at any time with little warning, rapidly spread over designated boundaries and cause diverse and widespread impacts across affected communities.

The City of Marion can help to minimise these threats and contribute to the safety and wellbeing of its community by participating in local emergency management alongside neighbouring councils. The City of Marion Community Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) forms part of Council’s commitment to emergency management planning and ensures that Council has a coordinated and planned management of emergencies.

For the purpose of emergency management, South Australia is divided into 11 Emergency Management Zones. The City of Marion is part of the Southern Adelaide Zone together with our neighbouring councils; City of Onkaparinga, City of Mitcham and City of Holdfast Bay. Key Hazards and Risks relevant to the Southern Adelaide Zone have been assessed and summarised in the Southern Adelaide Zone Emergency Management Plan
