- Review of connecting with and preparing communities for major emergencies in Victoria

Under section 64(1)(ba) of the Emergency Management Act 2013, IGEM monitors and reports to the Minister for Police and Emergency Services on the implementation of recommendations arising from its system-wide reviews.
In this report, IGEM observes that the emergency management sector has made good progress in relation to emergency management planning and preparedness to support high-risk Victorian communities and individuals, and improvements to state arrangements for impact assessment and consequence management.
Of the 11 recommendations assessed in this report, IGEM considers:
- one as complete
- one as closed
- nine as ongoing.
IGEM will continue to monitor the implementation of the ongoing recommendations from this report, and the implementation of all accepted recommendations from published system-wide reviews conducted under IGEM’s Annual Forward Plan of Reviews.
