NSW communities live with a variety of hazards, both natural and human-made. Natural hazards include those of climatic, geophysical or biological origin. Human-made hazards include those arising from technology, human fault and hostile action. Some major natural hazards, such as bushfires, are seasonal and regional but other types of hazards, particularly those made by humans, are less predictable, and could occur almost anytime or anywhere. A hazard impact on a community may result in an emergency.
