The Fundamentals of Emergency Management

The Fundamentals of Emergency Management

The emergency management sector is working together to develop principles underpinning emergency management activities.

This first publication, the Fundamentals of Emergency Management (Class 1 emergencies) outlines the principles underpinning the emergency management activities of the CFA, the DELWP, MFB, the VICSES and EMV, produced during a period of change within the Victorian emergency management sector involving the introduction of the Emergency Management Act 2013 and the establishment of EMV on July 1 2014.

While it specifically references the responder agencies and EMV, the document provides overarching guiding principles on the management of emergencies, that may be applied to a variety of emergencies.
