The governance arrangements for Victoria’s emergency management planning framework involves:
the Emergency Management Commissioner (EMC), who is responsible for state-level planning, and chairs the State Emergency Management Planning Committee (SEMPC)
Regional Emergency Management Planning Committees (REMPCs) which are responsible for regional level planning – one for each emergency management region
Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committees (MEMPCs) which are responsible for planning at the municipal level – one for each municipal district
community level planning is optional and not a legislated requirement (there are no formal governance requirements).
