The State Emergency Relief and Recovery Plan (part 4 of the Emergency Management Manual Victoria) specifies the arrangements for delivering emergency relief and recovery services and support in Victoria.
The plan is available on the Emergency Management Victoria website:
Relief and recovery are responsibilities that require collaboration and coordination shared between individuals and communities, non-government organisations, businesses and government agencies. This plan is intended to support and guide the work of that broad relief and recovery sector.
This plan is part of a broader Victorian and Commonwealth emergency management framework. It should therefore be read in conjunction with relevant legislation and other parts of the Emergency Management Manual Victoria, the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience and the National Principles for Disaster Recovery.
