Citizen's Police Academy and the Citizen's Fire Academy have to do various functions and activities when an emergency situation happens. As per the court of law it is responsibility of police and fire departments to reduce the impact of man-made or natural threats in a productive way(Neale et al 2014). Organizations have to create an emergency response plan in order managing the issues in an effective way. Now we can analyze the roles and responsibilities of those who would respond to a large chemical spill in your city.

The fire department in city has to focus different aspects while delivering their services for managing the disasters. As per the report of Redland city council (2010) the fire department has to perform their function by analyzing the impact of disaster among the common people in the city.

Local disaster management act (2003) states that, local government authorities have to take productive actions for solving the issue in an effective way. It is mandatory to establish a local disaster management group for managing the issues associated with the disasters (Sylves 2014).
