This is the Inspector-General for Emergency Management’s (IGEM) fifth progress report on the State’s implementation of the Victorian Emergency Management Strategic Action Plan (External link) (SAP).

Implementation of SAP actions aim to support a sustainable and efficient emergency management system for Victorian communities.

This report summarises key activities and provides an assessment of implementation progress of nine SAP Update #4 actions between 1 January to 31 December 2020, along with key developments in early 2021.

IGEM found that all nine SAP actions assessed in the progress report remain ongoing:

  • three are progressing satisfactorily
  • two are progressing with revised timeframes
  • one is in the early stages of development
  • two previously on hold have recently recommenced
  • one is overdue.

Overall IGEM acknowledges that 2020 was a very challenging year for organisations across the sector. Despite this, Emergency Management Victoria and other sector organisations were able to advance a range of important initiatives under the SAP.

IGEM will continue to monitor SAP implementation by sector organisations and report to the Minister for Emergency Services on implementation progress.

IGEM’s Victorian Emergency Management Strategic Action Plan Update #4 2019–22 – Progress Report 2020 was published on 18 October 2021.
