Emergency management - Hume

Our responsibilities in Victoria’s emergency management arrangements include the following:

In Victoria our emergency management arrangements are based upon the all hazards, all agencies approach. Under this approach, all emergencies, regardless of their cause, are managed through a consistent set of arrangements. This includes health service or hospital capacity to deliver care during incidents and emergencies, and maintain their ability to provide usual hospital services.
