Emergency Response Plan
Mid Murray Council’s Emergency Response Plan defines the role of Council to take measures to protect its area from natural and other hazards and to mitigate the effects of such hazards.
The plan outlines a range of functions required of council including:
- Support of those organisations which have responsibility for the management of incidents or events which have been declared disasters pursuant to the State Disaster Plan.
- Respond to incidents which occur within the Council area and which require an internal response.
This Plan identifies the personnel authorised to activate the disaster response from Council, details resources available and specifies procedures for operational response.
Mid Murray Council’s existing Emergency Response Plan is currently being updated.
