Our role during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic
Local government performs an important role in Victoria’s emergency management arrangements. We have access to specialised local knowledge and we are in the best position to help our communities prepare for, respond to and recover from emergency situations.
We are planning and activating a number of relief and recovery efforts in line with both our Municipal Emergency Management Plan and Pandemic Plan to help our community.
We have convened a skilled team who lead our response to the 4 areas of municipal service delivery outlined in the Pandemic Plan.
The 4 areas of municipal service delivery are:
- Community support and recovery
- Public health
- Business continuity
- Local essential services.
