​​​​​​​All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) Program​


The All West Australians Reducing Emergencies (AWARE) program aims to enhance WA's Emergency Management arrangements by investing in capacity building and preparedness activities at a local level. Each round of AWARE sets priority categories to be addressed via a competitive grant round.

Projects delivered under the 2020-21 AWARE program will support local government projects that fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • ​​Furthering the emergency risk management process
  • Facilitating capability-based exercises
  • Assisting in reviewing Local Emergency Management Arrangements (LEMA)
  • Delivering emergency management training
  • Hosting or facilitating emergency management events or forums
