Progress being made on recent IGEM findings

30 July 2021

The Victorian Government has released progress reporting on the implementation of recent Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) inquiries on its website.  

The community can now find out about steps being taken to deliver on IGEM’s findings, which will improve the safety and resilience of all Victorians. 

It follows the publishing of the IGEM review and inquiry reports in 2019-20: 

The Victorian Government accepted all recommendations from both reports in October 2020, welcoming their release and committing to implementing all IGEM’s recommendations. 

Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp said there has been significant transformation of Victoria’s emergency management arrangements over the last 10 years. 

“However, as IGEM indicates, there are further opportunities to strengthen Victoria’s emergency management arrangements to ensure the sector and community are best placed to prepare for, respond to and recover from all future emergencies.”
