Planning for emergencies at a municipal level has changed since 1 December 2020 with the Municipal Emergency Management Committee (MEMPC) no longer being a committee of the Council. Instead these committees report to the regional emergency management committee. For Strathbogie this means the Hume Regional Emergency Management Committee (Hume REMPC).

The reforms were introduced to encourage greater inter agency collaboration in the planning, response and recovery from emergencies.


Opportunity for Business representation (maximum of two (2) positions)

Whilst the MEMPC is involved in the documentation of a Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) which includes risk identification, mitigation and response arrangements, the relief and recovery for the community following an emergency is of critical importance and one in which the Council will be heavily involved with the community as the local lead agency for relief and recovery.

The MEMPC is keen to provide an opportunity for up to two locally based community or business representatives to join the Committee to strengthen the planning and delivery of relief and recovery post an emergency event.


Selection Criteria

Applicants for these positions need to demonstrate.

  1. Ability to represent their community or business sector
  2. Able to clearly communicate the issues of concern for the community or business sector and make suggestions to address them
  3. Able to prioritise issues of concern
  4. Extensive history and experience within the community or business sector
  5. Extensive community-based networks which would assist in expanding the knowledge base that the applicant can bring into the discussions
  6. Willingness to attend MEMPC meetings – generally 4 meetings per year although additional meetings as required (on-line meetings may be required)
  7. Some previous knowledge in emergency relief or recovery would be useful (not mandatory)
