Emergencies and recovery

About emergencies and recovery

The Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) responds to a range of emergency events that affect primary producers working in all sectors, including:

  • agriculture
  • livestock
  • horticulture
  • aquaculture
  • fisheries
  • forestry.

We act as both a lead and support agency, depending on the type and severity of emergencies, that affect primary production and regions across South Australia.
