​​​​​​​​Welcome to the Goldfields-Esperance District Emergency Management Committee portal ​

 

The Goldfields-Esperance Emergency Management District is one of the largest and more remote districts in Western Australia.  Encompassing over 953,000km2, it covers 9 local governments and includes over 20 remote indigenous communities. The district stretches from the town of Esperance 720km south east of Perth to the Shire of Wiluna in the north and east as far as the South Australian border (some 1500km from Perth). 

Mining is a major industry in the district, with the famous 'super pit' situated outside of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, as well as many other large mining projects across the area. The pastoral and agricultural industries also play a significant role in the economy. The region's beautiful landscapes, pristine natural bushland, rugged coastal areas and famous beaches means that tourism is another important industry.

The district has a population of approximately 61,000 and a gross area product of approximately $13.6 billion per annum. 

Natural and man-made hazard events occur throughout the region.​ The identified priority hazards (as identified​ by the State Risk Project) include:​​ Fire, Earthquake, Storm, Human Epidemic, Marine Transport Emergency and Rail Crash. The State Risk Project is currently working with the region ​to develop a comprehensive understanding of these hazards.​
