Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP)

The City of Greater Dandenong Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) has been produced according to Section 20 of the Emergency Management Act 1986.

Our MEMP is developed and owned by the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee (MEMPC) members comprising representatives from Council, Victoria Police (VICPOL), Country Fire Authority (CFA), Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES), Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Red Cross and other support and relief agencies. The MEMP details the agreed planning arrangements concerning the prevention of, the response to, and the recovery from emergencies that may occur in in our City. It also maps out how, as a community, we can best cope with the shocks and stresses experienced as a result of natural disasters and other emergencies.

Council is continually reviewing and updating the Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP). It was last audited by VICSES in March 2018 and is due to be re audited in early 2021.

Key points of our MEMP include:

  • Management arrangements for the use of Council resources in response to emergencies.
  • Manage support that may be provided to or from adjoining municipalities.
  • Assistance provided to affected communities to recover after an emergency.
  • Consideration of other local, regional and state planning arrangements.
  • The assessment of the impact of the emergency.
  • Various Sub Plans relating to Fire Management, Flood and Storm, Heatwave and other events.
