Members are reminded the consultation period for the Emergency Services Act Concept Paper closes on July 31.
The Concept Paper has been drafted based on the extensive consultation that has been undertaken. During the first stage of consultation, the Review Team met with over 450 people as part of information sessions across Western Australia. The Project Team also hosted 11 expert panel meetings between August and November 2013, with representatives of local governments, state government agencies, volunteers and the private sector. To date, in excess of 1500 individuals have been directly consulted on the review through various channels by the Department with 220 formal submissions received.
