Council has a role to play before, during and after emergencies. We work closely with emergency service and recovery agencies to keep our community safe and supported during an emergency event.
The Emergency Management Act 1986 and the Local Government Act 1989 outline the important role Councils play in Victoria’s emergency management arrangements in particular Council’s connection to the community.
