Over the past few years, Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) has produced the Victorian Bushfire Handbook (Edition 5).

In reviewing this handbook, the State Control Team has determined that it has a greater application than just bushfire and has moved to include all types of emergencies. It has been renamed the Victorian Emergency Operations Handbook.

The Victorian Emergency Operations Handbook summarises the operational management structures and systems used by agencies and government departments for preparedness, readiness and response to major emergencies in Victoria. This handbook is an important reference for all those involved in managing major emergencies in Victoria. It is particularly relevant for those involved in incident management.

The handbook can be found on the EMV website and through EM-COP or you can follow this link:
