The Emergency Management Act (EMA) provides the legislative framework for local and provincial management of emergencies and disasters. It outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Minister of Municipal Affairs, the provincial government, and local authorities. The EMA provides the authority for the granting of additional powers during a state of emergency or a state of local emergency and governs the coming into force, expiration, and termination of these states of emergency. The EMA also has regulation making authority, under which the Disaster Recovery Regulation and the Government Emergency Management Regulation were established.
