Emergency Management Planning

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.

Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee (MEMPC)

This Plan, prepared by the Knox Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee (MEMPC), reflects the shared responsibilities of government, emergency management agencies and communities for the actions they will take to prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies.

It is important for community resilience that community, emergency services and relief and recovery agencies work together. The contents of this plan represent an integrated approach to managing all types of emergencies in Knox.
