Logistics Functional Support Group

The Logistics Functional Support Group (LFSG) contributes to the coordination role of the State Emergency Centre (SEC) by supporting response and recovery operations for all emergencies, as specified in the State Emergency Management Plan.

The LFSG is operated by the SA Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM) to facilitate the effective provision of supplies and/or catering resources/services to emergency services personnel and the SA community during and immediately after an identified major incident, major emergency or disaster.

To ensure an effective and efficient 24 hour a day, 365 day a year operation, rosters are in place for key positions. SAFECOM also employs a dedicated LFSG Coordinator to maintain operational readiness including the recruitment and regular training of individuals from participating Government agencies.

When the LFSG is activated, the LFSG Manager is supported by the LFSG Coordinator and volunteer Liaison Officers. Tasks can include organising equipment, food, fuel, water or shelter for affected community members and responding emergency services personnel.
