recognised emergency management body

A recognised emergency management body is an officially designated government organisation involved in managing emergencies or natural disasters, such as the State Emergency Service (SES) or Country Fire Authority (CFA).

These bodies are specialised agencies set up by the government to handle situations like floods, fires, and other natural or man-made disasters. Their role is to plan for emergencies, coordinate responses, and help communities recover. Examples include the State Emergency Service which assists in natural disaster responses, and the Country Fire Authority which focuses on firefighting and community safety.
