Emergency Management Planning

at Lake Mountain Alpine Resort

Southern Alpine Resort Management Board has a responsibility to plan, respond and assist with recovery in the event of an emergency affecting its community. A Municipal Emergency Management Planning Committee has been established and produced a Municipal Emergency Management Plan in conjunction with the Victoria State Emergency Service and pursuant to the Emergency Management Act 1986 and Emergency Management Act 2013.

The Municipal Emergency Management Plan for Southern Alpine Resort Management Board has been developed for Lake Mountain and Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resorts to meet the legislative requirements.

The aim of the Municipal Emergency Management Plan is to detail the agreed arrangements for the planning, prevention, response and recovery from emergencies that could occur in the Lake Mountain and Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resorts. This includes:

  • Ensure that emergency management is organised within a structure that facilitates planning, preparedness, operational coordination and community participation;
  • Implement measures to prevent or reduce the causes or effects of emergencies;
  • Manage arrangements for the utilisation and implementation of resources in response to emergencies;
  • Manage support that may be provided from adjoining municipalities and other agencies;
  • Assist the affected community to recover following an emergency; and
  • Complement other local, regional and state planning arrangements.
