Prepare an emergency plan

You must prepare an emergency plan after consulting with:

  • Fire and Rescue NSW
  • the NSW Rural Fire Service (if you’re in a rural fire district)
  • the local council.

The plan must:

  • address all health and safety consequences of a major incident occurring
  • include all matters outlined in Schedule 16
  • provide for testing of emergency procedures, including frequency of testing.

Give a copy of the plan to the emergency services you have consulted – and to any other relevant emergency services.

You must test the emergency plan before you apply for a licence. Also, implement the plan immediately if a major incident occurs or is likely to occur – and contact emergency services.
