Emergency management capability in Victoria

A model to understand capability

A model to understand capability in Victoria has been in development in the emergency management sector since 2015. It is based on the United States’ National Preparedness Goal.

It includes three parts as outlined below.

Emergency Management Capability Blueprint 2015-2025

The Victorian Emergency Management Capability Blueprint 2015-2025 outlines the current and desired future state for Victoria’s emergency management capability. The overall aim of the Blueprint is to have an effective emergency management capability across Victoria that can meet future needs.

Victorian Preparedness Goal 

The Victorian Preparedness Goal sets out the core capabilities we need to deal with the challenges and risks we face as a community, and how we effectively deliver them.

Victorian Preparedness Framework

The Victorian Preparedness Framework builds on work that has been occurring within the sector and uses findings from the Emergency Risks in Victoria report to identify the major risks facing the state, determine overall preparedness and outline the core capabilities. It provides a practical step, a methodology to develop capability targets, and the critical tasks required to achieve the core capabilities of those targets.

2022 Review of the Victorian Preparedness Goal and Victorian Preparedness Framework

EMV has commenced a review of the Victorian Preparedness Framework and the Victorian Preparedness Goal to ensure both remain fit for purpose and appropriately promotes the principles of shared responsibility and self-reliance.

A community survey (External link) to inform a part of the review is open until 18 March 2021. 

The full review is due to be completed in mid-2022.

If you would like to know more about the review, please email emergencyplanning@emv.vic.gov.au.
