Every local council in Victoria must have an emergency plan. In Campaspe, this plan has been developed by the Emergency Management Plan Committee with the support of:

  • the State Emergency Service (SES)
  • Victoria Police
  • Country Fire Authority (CFA)
  • Department of Health and Human Services.

The plan Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) outlines ways council can prevent, respond to and recover from emergencies. Council doesn’t respond directly to the emergency. That’s the job of emergency services such as the police, SES and CFA. Council’s role is to support these services so they can focus on dealing with the emergency. For example, council could provide an Emergency Coordination Centre and Emergency Relief Centres.

The MEMP is audited by the Victoria State Emergency Service every three years. Emergency service agencies have copies of the plan, which are also available at Campaspe’s libraries. You can access the MEMP below, as well as a number of sub-plans for specific types of emergencies.
