The actions on this page are identified in the Victorian Government to Recommendation 1 from the IGEM Review of 10 years of reform in Victoria's emergency management sector
IGEM Recommendation 1: Sector-wide outcomes
The Inspector-General for Emergency Management (IGEM) recommends that Emergency Management Victoria, in collaboration with the community and emergency management sector:
- develops and implements a sector-wide outcomes framework that aligns to the strategic and operational elements of all phases of emergency management. The framework must:
- develop emergency management outcomes that reflect the Victorian whole-of-government outcomes
- identify outcome measures and associated indicators
- provides guidance and support for the sector on how to incorporate emergency management outcomes and measures in emergency management planning, policy development, decision-making and assurance activities.
Action 1.1: Develop outcomes frameworks for the fire services sector and the 2019-20 bushfire recovery
Over the past 12 months, outcomes frameworks have been developed by the Country Fire Authority and Fire Rescue Victoria. Bushfire Recovery Victoria has also developed a recovery outcomes framework for the 2019-20 bushfires.
Action 1.2: Recovery outcomes developed through Victoria’s Resilient Recovery Strategy
Victoria’s Resilient Recovery Strategy details the strategic approach to improving Victoria’s recovery systems, setting agreed recovery outcomes to guide recovery programs, with consideration of local community outcomes and priorities.
Action 1.3: Develop a sector-wide outcomes framework to measure the effectiveness of the emergency management sector
Emergency Management Victoria will consult and collaborate with relevant agencies to develop a sector-wide outcomes framework to measure the effectiveness of the emergency management sector in supporting resilient communities and providing reliable, integrated and timely services. The Victorian Government has recently agreed to an extension of this project’s delivery date, to June 2022.
