Review of the 2010–11 Flood Warnings and Response
The Honourable Ted Baillieu MPPremier of Victoria1 Treasury PlaceMelbourne VIC 3002Dear PremierThe Final Report of the Review of the 2010–11 Flood Warnings and Response is forwarded herewith inaccordance with the Terms of Reference.This Review has provided the opportunity to conduct a detailed examination of the emergency managementarrangements in Victoria in the context of the 2010–11 oods. It has also provided the opportunity to revisitseveral of the ndings and recommendations of the 2009 Victorian Bushres Royal Commission. It is noteworthythat the Floods Review and the Royal Commission have both revealed signicant shortcomings in Victoria’semergency management arrangements.The recommendations in this report will support the major reform program announced on 12 September 2011with the release of the government’s green paper
Towards a More Disaster Resilient and Safer Victoria
and thecompanion document
Victoria Prepared: An Action Plan
. Importantly, I have concluded that there is presentlya palpable appetite and momentum for reform in Victoria’s emergency management sector.I wish to record my appreciation of the contribution of many Victorians to the formulation of therecommendations in this report. I also observe that Victoria is well served by the many paid and volunteeremergency service workers who performed admirably in dealing with the considerable challenges presentedby the 2010–11 oods in this state.I commend the recommendations in this report to the Victorian Government.Yours sincerelyNeil Comrie AO, APM1 December 2011
