Victoria's Emergency Management Reform

Presentation by: Tony Murphy, Director of Capability and Response, Emergency Management Victoria

Presentation package now available (members only)

Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) was launched on 1 July as a single authority to coordinate all State emergency services’ response to emergencies and disasters. It is the first of its kind in Australia and represents a step change in emergency management by the State.
Tony Murphy, Director of Capability and Response, Emergency Management Victoria, presented to Central Safety Group on August 12, 2014, and spoke about the creation of this new authority in the wake of emergencies, such as Black Saturday. Reports highlighted shortfalls in integration between the emergency service agencies and so EMV was created to address this.
Tony outlined the agency’s brief, which includes reaching out and working in conjunction with communities and business as well as Government as a whole, not just agencies involved with emergency services.
Tony also explained the newly-established control arrangements for response to Class 1 emergencies, as well as the incident management structure.
As a result of this integration, the approach to health and safety requires an overhaul. It is a key agenda item for EMV and is being led from the top. Tony said there was recognition of the importance of aligning operational standards and procedures and having a joined-up, consistent approach to health and safety across the different emergency service agencies.
