Emergency Management planning reform program

EMV is leading reforms to Victoria's arrangements that apply to emergency management planning at state, regional and municipal levels.

The Emergency Management Legislation Amendment Act 2018 (External link) was passed through Parliament in August 2018, and will establish a new integrated, comprehensive and coordinated framework for emergency management planning.
