The way we manage emergencies in Victoria has changed significantly since the 2009 Victorian bushfires. This pivotal period has heralded a new overarching agency to establish reform across the emergency management sector.
Emergency Management Victoria now set the standard for how agencies work together before, during and after emergencies. The shared goal for emergency management in Victoria is for a sustainable and efficient emergency management system that reduces the likelihood, effect and consequences of emergencies.
Across the Knox municipal area our focus is consistent with State and regional objectives. We work collaboratively with agencies, departments, industry, business and all levels of government to ensure that outcomes are meaningful and community-focused.
