Municipal Emergency Management Plan endorsed
Published on 28 August 2023
The Municipal Emergency Management Plan 2023-2026 for Maroondah has been endorsed by the Regional Emergency Management Planning Committee and noted by Council at its meeting in July.
The Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) addresses the prevention of, response to and recovery from emergencies within the municipality of Maroondah.
The plan is updated every three years and reflects shared responsibilities across government, emergency management agencies and communities.
The MEMP was accompanied by a Statement of Assurance to verify that the plan has been prepared in accordance with relevant legislation and best practice guidelines.
Mayor of Maroondah, Councillor Rob Steane OAM, encouraged community members to view the plan and other emergency management information on Council’s website.
“Council is pleased to see the Municipal Emergency Management Plan for Maroondah endorsed by the Regional Emergency Management Planning Committee. Community members who are interested in finding out more can view the plan on Council’s website,” Cr Steane said.
“Council’s website also contains a range of other resources and information about emergency preparation and management, which I encourage our community to view.”
Developing the MEMP is a shared responsibility of the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee, which is chaired by Maroondah City Council.
The Committee includes a range of response and recovery agencies and organisations such as Victoria State Emergency Service, emergency services organisations including Victoria Police and Fire Rescue Victoria, local businesses, and representatives from Council and the local community. Members have personal, industrial or organisational expertise in emergency management and collaborate on emergency management planning overall.
