Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP)

In accordance with the Emergency Management Act 1986, Council must prepare and maintain a Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP), in conjunction with the Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee (MEMPC). Membership of the MEMPC includes representatives from local emergency service organisations, relief and recovery agencies, local health services and utilities as well as relevant State government departments. The updated MEMP is now available for public feedback. A MEMP facilitates planning, preparedness, operational coordination and community participation for the prevention of, response to and recovery from an emergency event.

 You can access the draft plan below and any person may make a submission regarding the proposed plan in accordance with section 223 of the Local Government Act 1989. Any person wishing to be heard or represented in support of their submission must clearly specify this in their submission.

 Submissions should be addressed to the Chief Executive Officer, Towong Shire Council, PO Box 55, Tallangatta 3700. Council will consider all submissions and a final MEMP at a Special Meeting of Council on 17 July 2018. Submissions close 5.00pm Wednesday 4 July 2018.
