- Emergency Management
Our Commitment to Emergency Management
Councils have a key role to play in emergency management and supporting safety. Often, councils are in the unique position of being the only familiar ‘face’ among a number of agencies which assist affected communities throughout an emergency.
To ensure the South Gippsland community will have appropriate management strategies for all emergencies, the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee [MEMPC] has prepared a Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMPlan) in accordance with the requirements of Section 20(1) of the Emergency Management Act 1986.
Council works with all emergency service organisations, state government departments, water industry, health industry and other associated bodies within this committee.
