Have your say: 10 years of emergency management reform

Due Date
25 Aug 2019

Victoria's Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) invites individuals and organisations to contribute to the review of 10 years of emergency management reform. Over the last decade many changes to the emergency management arrangements have been introduced to improve the way Victoria prepares for, responds to and recovers from emergencies such as bushfire, flood, storm and heatwave. 

Inspector-General Tony Pearce is conducting a comprehensive review of the progress made in the emergency management sector since the 2009 Victorian Bushfires. 

This review will not re-examine past emergencies, nor the findings or recommendations from independent inquiries and reviews such as the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission. 

The scope of this review is limited to reforms prior to March 2019. 

The primary goal of this review is to understand whether Victoria’s emergency management reform strategy has achieved the outcomes it set out to achieve for the sector, and importantly Victorian communities. 

Find out more and share your views through until Sunday 25 August at
