Enabling significant improvement to the State’s
emergency service capability, the Regional Boundary
Alignment project saw the redrafting of our field delivery
boundaries to match municipal boundaries.
With only a few key amendments based on operational imperatives, we have now formalised the alignment to the State Government regional boundaries.
The Regional Boundary Alignment project saw the successful implementation of a geographic platform from which to build further organisational change. We now have a regional footprint consistent with our key agency and departmental partners; one that recognises the importance of municipalities in emergency management.
The Boundary Alignment project saw:
- the retitling of regions into districts, and areas into regions
- the consolidation of nine areas into eight regions
- a direct impact on 273 brigades
- the transition of 185 brigades into new regions and districts
- the transition of 67 brigades into new groups.
The Boundary Alignment project will continue to ensure that all operational and business improvements are realised.
