Council

The Victorian Emergency Management Act 1986 requires that each municipal council prepares and maintains a Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP). The Horsham Rural City Council's MEMP includes strategies to prevent, prepare, respond and recover from emergencies which may occur within the municipality and impact on residents and infrastructure. This plan is administered by the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee (MEMPC) which comprises members from all emergency services, agencies and organisations.

It is important that residents are aware of the risks they may be exposed to and develop their own personal emergency management plan. The links below will direct residents to sites which can provide detailed information on specific emergency management plans.

 

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail" 

[Benjamin Franklin]

There are a number of organisations and templates to help you develop your own emergency plan. It is not important which one you use but more important that you have one and keep it up to date:
