Emergency Management

The following pages provide information of use to operators looking to increase their organisational resilience in the areas of natural disasters, terrorism and organised crime that align to the current Australian definition of national security.

Marine pollution

Through its Emergency Risk and Resilience division, the department is responsible for ensuring Victoria is adequately prepared for and effectively responds to a marine pollution incident in State coastal waters up to three nautical miles offshore.

It is tasked with leading the response to oil spills in Victorian waters, as well as storing and maintaining pollution response equipment throughout the state to utilise in the event of an incident.

The Department is not a response agency for natural disasters, terrorism or organised crime. In the event of an emergency, please call 000 (triple zero) in the first instance. For emergency alerts and warnings, please visit
