ANSWERS TO ESTIMATES COMMITTEE-RELATED WRITTEN QUESTIONS 2011-12 50. DoJ performs a diverse range of functions, some of which are required to continue to be performed during emergencies; for example, custodial services within the Northern Territory Correctional Services area. DoJ does not currently have positions specified as essential; however, various positions are assigned responsibilities, before, during and after an emergency such as a cyclone. Dependent on the size and nature of an emergency event, additional staff may also be assigned with specific duties to assist in whole-of-government or internal coordination activities or support to the community. DoJ will consider the need to classify positions as essential when it reviews its emergency response plan. Marketing: 51.
