Municipal Emergency Management Plan

The economic and social effects of emergencies including loss of life, destruction of property, and dislocation of communities are inevitable. Coping with hazards gives our reason and focus for planning. Hazards exist within all communities whether they are recognised or not.

The Mornington Peninsula Emergency Management Plan has been produced pursuant to Section 77 of the Emergency Management Act 2013.

The Plan addresses the mitigation of, response to and recovery from emergencies within the Mornington Peninsula Shire. It has been developed by the Council's Emergency Management Planning Committee with assistance from numerous agencies including Ambulance Victoria, Australian Red Cross, Country Fire Authority and Department of Families, Fairness & Housing, Fire Rescue Victoria, the Shire, Victoria Police and Victoria State Emergency Service and recognises the previous planning activities of the municipal area.
