How we work

The Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) takes a collaborative, evidence-based and community-focused approach to its work.

Through engaging regularly with its emergency management partners and the community, IGEM:

  • objectively assesses and monitors the capacity, capability and performance of the emergency management sector
  • promotes a culture of continuous improvement.

IGEM’s focus is on reviewing strategic and system-wide issues and emergency management practices for potential improvement.  

It has lead the collaborative development of the monitoring and assurance framework for emergency management in Victoria that actively promotes and supports sector-wide improvement. 

Through its engagement with statutory entities, local governments, government departments, the private sector and community, IGEM gathers a wealth of information on emergency management practices to see what has worked well, what needs improving and the progress made with implementing sustainable improvements to work practices over time.

Through its consultations, reviews and reports, IGEM shares information with its emergency management partners and the community to support its contribution toward strengthening Victoria’s emergency management arrangements.
