Have your say on Victorian emergency preparedness

Emergency Management Victoria is reviewing the Victorian Preparedness Goal and Victorian Preparedness Framework to ensure both remain fit for purpose and appropriately promote the principles of shared responsibility and self-reliance.

 

The review is in response to the recommendations made by the Inspector-General for Emergency Management’s 10 Year Review of Victoria’s Emergency Management Sector. 

A community survey to inform the review is now live on the Engage Victoria website until 18 March 2022. We invite you and any other interested community representatives to complete the survey.

We also invite you to distribute this survey widely across your community networks. All responses will be deidentified and used to inform the review. 

The Victorian Preparedness Goal, released in 2016, provides a shared vision to build a sustainable and efficient emergency management system to reduce the likelihood, effect and consequences of major emergencies.

The Goal sets out the 21 core capabilities needed to deal with the challenges and risks faced by communities and how to effectively deliver them.

The Victorian Preparedness Framework extends these core capabilities to outline in detail tangible and definable critical tasks to be delivered to fulfil the intent of each. 

The revised Victorian Preparedness Framework, which will incorporate the goal, is expected to be published mid-2022.

Any questions on the consultation or the wider review can be directed to Laura Adams, Program Manager, Planning and Capability, EMV at laura.s.adams@emv.vic.gov.au
