From the CEO blog:

'Emergency Management Victoria (EMV), the overarching body for emergency management, coordination of emergency management policy and implementation of emergency management reform, officially commenced operations today.'

'On behalf of all in CFA, I would firstly like to congratulate Acting CEO Robertson and Commissioner Lapsley on their appointments and also wish their team all the very best as they commence their planned program of work.'

'We are excited by this next phase in our emergency management journey which in fact began together, some four years ago. This is not just about starting something new; but rather about all key agencies working together to learn and build from our collective experience.'
