Emergencies can take many forms, including natural disaster such as fire or flood, tragic incidents, or other forms of loss or disruption to people’s lives.
Council works closely with emergency services, particularly Victoria Police, the Country Fire Authority (CFA), and State Emergency Service (SES), and other authorities, such as the Department of Infrastructure and VicRoads to ensure appropriate measures are in place in the event of an emergency. Below are links to download a copy of Council's emergency management plan and accompanying maps.
