FOR EMERGENCIES DIAL 000
The VicEmergency Hotline has been created for warnings, preparedness and recovery information, planned burns and more. The hotline replaces the Victoria Bushfire Information Line (VBIL), SES Information Line, Victorian Emergency Recovery Information Line, and others from DEDJTR and DELWP.
MUNICIPAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PLAN
The Hindmarsh Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) addresses the prevention of, response to and recovery from emergencies within the Hindmarsh municipality. It is the result of the co-operative efforts of the emergency management planning committee, which includes representatives from Victoria Police, CFA, DELWP, Ambulance Victoria, DEDJTR, SES, DHHS, VicRoads, GWMWater, Red Cross, Wimmera CMA, Hindmarsh Shire Council and other agencies. The MEMP does not attempt to reinvent the wheel and actively recognises the previous planning activities of the municipal area.

MUNICIPAL FIRE MANAGEMENT PLAN
The Hindmarsh Municipal Fire Management Planning Committee (MFMPC) includes members from DELWP, CFA and Hindmarsh Shire Council. The committee is supported at a regional level by the Grampians Strategic Fire Management Planning Committee and at a State level by the State Fire Management Planning Committee.
A key responsibility of the MFMPC is the development of a Municipal Fire Management Plan (MFMP). This plan describes how regional authorities, local government, fire agencies and other relevant organisations can work together to effectively anticipate, respond to and recover from bushfire events affecting the Hindmarsh municipality.
