Th​e ​district component of the State Risk Project assesses the top five or six hazards in each of the emergency management (EM) districts. Participants from the District Emergency Management Committees and other relevant agencies attended the workshop series which were held in each regional centre. For the purpose of district work, the four metropolitan EM districts were combined to account for the common and intertwined geography.
The project began in 2015 and will be completed at the end of 2016. Risk reports, which summarise the risks from the assessed hazards in each district are being prepared and the full suite of reports, were released in May 2017.​​​

​District Risk Reports​

A risk assessment report has been produced for each of the Emergency Management districts in the state. These reports detail the results of the district risk assessments that were conducted as part of the State Risk Project

Each report explains the risks posed to the district from a range of priority hazards. A credible worst-case scenario for each hazard was assessed in a workshop setting to determine the risks. Participants assessed how the hazards may impact upon the district's economy, its people, public administration, the environment and the social setting. These five key areas are part of the State Core Objectives

The collective district data represents the culmination of ​three years of extensive collaboration that has included input from 406 individuals from 119 separate agencies. The State Risk Project has identified the district level as the best avenue for practically assessing risk, developing treatments and measuring capability. These reports provide a body of evidence that shows how emergencies will likely affect us. This will then inform mitigation options and expenditure priorities to build a more resilient state.
