Emergency Management Manual Victoria

In 2018, the Victorian Parliament passed amendments to the Emergency Management Act 2013, requiring the Emergency Management Commissioner to arrange for the preparation of the Victorian State Emergency Management Plan (SEMP). The SEMP came into effect on 30 September 2020 and replaced the following parts of the EMMV: 

  • Part 3: State Emergency Response Plan 
  • Part 4: State Emergency Relief and Recovery Plan 
  • Part 7: Emergency Management Agency Roles 
  • Part 8: Appendices and Glossary 

These parts of the EMMV ceased to have effect on 30 September 2020. 

The remaining EMMV chapters and appendices were discontinued on 1 December 2020 and are superseded by the regional and municipal level reforms in the Emergency Management Legislation Amendment Act 2018, the published Guidelines for Preparing State, Regional and Municipal Emergency Management Plans and existing doctrine, policy and procedures, many of which are available via the emergency management planning page or Emergency Management Planning Resource Library.

The Future of the EMMV fact sheet details where equivalent information from the EMMV is now located, much of which you will find through EMV's emergency management planning page.
