Municipal Emergency Management Plan

The economic and social effects of emergencies, including loss of life, destruction of property and dislocation of communities is inevitable.

Coping with hazards gives reason and focus for planning. Hazards exist within all communities,  although not always recognised. Experience shows, however, that good planning for the use of resources in preventative (risk management) activities, in response to emergencies and towards the recovery of affected communities and environments, can significantly lessen the harmful effects of those emergencies.

Council's Municipal Emergency Management Plan addresses the prevention of, response to and recovery from emergencies within the municipality of Maroondah and is the result of the cooperative efforts of the Emergency Management Planning Committee.  

The decision to activate this plan will be made by the Municipal Emergency Response Coordinator from Victoria Police, the Municipal Emergency Resource Office and Municipal Recovery Manager from Maroondah City Council.

There are a number of hazard specific plans that are a sub plan to the Municipal Emergency Management Plan. These include the Municipal Fire Management Plan (which is available via this website), Heatwave Plan, Storm and Flood Plan (available via the SES website), Municipal Relief and Recovery Plans, Pandemic Influenza and Animal Welfare.  If you would like any information regarding these subplans, please  contact  maroondah@maroondah.vic.gov.au or telephone 1300 88 22 33 and ask to speak to the relevant plan coordinators.
