Under the State Emergency and Rescue Management Act 1989 and the State Disaster Plan, NSW Public Works coordinates the Engineering Services Functional Area. It has played a key role in the past in major emergencies such as the Newcastle Earthquake, Thredbo landslide, Sydney hailstorms and major floods on the North Coast and Inland NSW. Engineering Services is also involved in the recovery phase of emergencies and particularly in the establishment of recovery centres which are set up as one-stop-shops to provide government assistance to disaster victims.
During the first three months of 2012, Engineering Services supported the SES response to significant inland flooding in the Murrumbidgee, Lachlan and Darling River Catchments particularly at Moree, Brewarrina, Wagga Wagga, Hay and Griffith. In 2013 the Engineering Emergency Management Team was tasked with the recovery, make safe and cleanup of asbestos contaminated properties following the Warrumbungles and Blue Mountains bush fires.


Another key role for NSW Public Works is the provision of specialist engineering input to Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) Task Forces.
This provides engineering coordination, assistance and technical advice on a state and district basis to emergency combat agencies, e.g. During the 2011 North Coast floods, Engineering Services set up recovery centres at Grafton, Taree and Kempsey. These are specially trained, fully self- sufficient flying squads which are able to be deployed anywhere at short notice to undertake the search and rescue for victims of major structural collapses.
He is assisted by a Deputy ESFAC, 14 Regional Functional Area Coordinators (RESFACs) and 13 Deputy RESFACs.


Police, Fire and Rescue, SES, and any other functional area involved in the response phase of emergencies. During 2011, NSW Public Works provided the engineering input for the deployment of USAR Task Forces to the Queensland floods, Christchurch earthquake and Japan earthquake and tsunami.
