Victorians will be safer during emergencies with an innovative new approach to improve the performance of the emergency management sector.
The Monitoring and Assurance Framework for Emergency Management, developed by the Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) Tony Pearce, was officially launched by the Minister for Emergency Services, Jane Garrett.
Under the framework IGEM will be able to review the preparedness for and management of emergencies and make recommendations on how to improve in the future.
It will ensure the lessons from emergencies are identified and improvements are made to make a lasting difference for communities, keeping Victorians safer.
The emergency management sector will have a consistent and coordinated approach in assessing its capacity, capability and performance through activities such as reviews, evaluations, monitoring and reporting.
IGEM will implement the framework to support continuous improvement across the Victorian emergency management sector.
Under the Emergency Management Act 2013, IGEM has the legislated function to develop, maintain and implement a monitoring and assurance framework for assessing the capacity, capability and performance of the emergency management sector.
