Campaspe Shire residents can now view the revised Municipal Emergency Management Plan after council announced last week it had adopted the plan.
The MEMPlan and its sub-plans ensure Campaspe Shire is best placed to prevent, respond to and recover from emergencies.
Campaspe Flood Recovery and Emergency Management spokesperson Cr Leigh Wilson said the broad aim of the plan was to ensure organisations involved in emergency management at a local level understand and implement agreed arrangements.
‘‘The MEMPlan will assist the member agencies to work together during and following an emergency,’’ he said.
‘‘It represents the collective view of our local expert emergency services personnel and council staff who have roles in emergency management, on how emergencies can be most effectively managed in the municipality.’’
Developed by the multi-agency Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee, Campaspe’s MEMPlan was originally adopted by council on January 8, 1997, and is updated annually, Cr Wilson said.
‘‘Victoria has experienced several emergencies of an extreme nature over the past few years including the catastrophic fires of Black Saturday and the devastating flood event of January 2011,’’ he said.
‘‘It is critically important that we reflect and learn from these events so that our emergency management agencies can better protect life and property as our climatic conditions continue to change into the future.’’
