Government Response to the IGEM Inquiry into the 2019-20 Victorian Fire Season: Phase Two Report

The Inspector-General for Emergency Management’s (IGEM) has delivered the Phase Two Report (External link) following its inquiry into the 2019-20 Victorian fire season. The Phase Two Report examines relief and recovery arrangements during and immediately after the 2019-20 Victorian bushfires.

The Victorian Government supports all 15 recommendations outlined in the Phase Two Report, that will collectively ensure the emergency management sector, local governments and communities are better placed to manage relief and recovery from bushfires and other emergencies.

This follows the Victorian Government’s acceptance and support of all 17 recommendations from IGEM's Phase One Report (External link), which was released in 2020 and focused on emergency preparedness and response.
