Emergency management at events
Thursday, 11 January 2018
We issued this media statement about emergency management at events.
Brett Luxford - Director
Investment and Attraction:
To gain an events permit from the City for a
public outdoor event, regardless of its size, all event organisers must submit
a risk assessment and an emergency management plan that satisfies public safety
requirements, and is proportionate to the risks associated with their activity
We set our public safety requirements in
consultation with Victoria Police and other relevant agencies, via the Events
Multi-Agency Working Group (established by the City in 2005), and we are guided
by the Commonwealth’s national framework Australia’s
Strategy for Protecting Crowded Places from Terrorism 2017.
The City does not provide information on
specific security plans, where they relate to individual events.
