The State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC)​ produces the Emergency Preparedness Report annually for the Minister for Emergency Services.

This report is a snapshot in time of the level of emergency management capability and preparedness we have, as a state, to manage before, during and after emergency events. It highlights our strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement statewide, and combines the input from about 170 agencies.

This style of reporting started in 2012 following catastrophic fire emergencies in the preceding fire season. As the only state in Australia to develop such a report for ministerial engagement, it has become a key reference for emergency preparedness in WA.
