The report provides information to assist private enterprise and governments to better understand and plan for emergencies in Victoria. It also sets out what is being done about those risks, and sources of further information, in order to better support strategic priority-setting.
The risk assessment report is published under a national initiative known as the National Strategy for Disaster Resilience, which has been adopted by all Australian states, territories and the Commonwealth.
The emergency risks in the assessment include bushfire, earthquake, flood, heatwave, hazardous materials emergency, storm, transport infrastructure emergency and marine pollution.
