Our organisation

Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) was established in July 2014 and plays a key role in implementing the Victorian Government’s emergency management reform agenda.

EMV supports the Emergency Management Commissioner, who has overall responsibility for coordination before, during and after major emergencies including management of consequences of an emergency.

EMV is an integral part of the emergency management sector and shares responsibility with a range of agencies, organisations and departments for ensuring the system of emergency management in Victoria is sustainable, effective and community focussed.
