The Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee is a collaborative committee made up of agencies and organisations responsible for the various aspects of emergency management. Agencies represented include:
The MEMPC works to address the impact of emergencies on the community. It achieves this through its primary responsibility of developing the Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP).
The Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) details the arrangements for the management of emergencies that can occur in Baw Baw Shire and it is developed by the MEMPC. The MEMP is the overarching emergency management document that is underpinned by a number of sub-plans and guidelines.
Currently Baw Baw Shire does not have a Neighbourhood Safer Place or Places of Last Resort.
