Over the last decade many independent inquiries and reviews have recommended improvements around the way Victoria prepares, responds and recovers from emergencies.

Communities right across the East Gippsland, Wellington, Alpine, Towong and other surrounding local government areas have been subject to a range of fire, flood, storm and other events in recent years.

VCOSS - the Victorian Council of Social Service  (External link)will be providing a submission to IGEM's review of emergency management reform  (External link)and invites community and social service organisations to join a consultation forum to tell VCOSS about the experiences of emergency events that have impacted their clients and communities.

A consultation in Bairnsdale will be held on Wednesday 19 June:

  • 11.15am until 2.15pm 
  • Location Bairnsdale Library Meeting Room 1, 22 Service Street, Bairnsdale
