The Mornington Shire Council Local Disaster Management Group works to reduce the negative impact disasters can have on our region and responds to disasters when they happen.
Specific LDMG Sub-Working Groups may be called together to reduce the effects of a disaster as they occur – such as the case for COVID-19 pandemic. When a disaster or major emergency happens, they then respond quickly to and ensure communities can recover.
Mornington Shire Council LDMG works closely with stage and federal agencies during times of disaster to ensure effective and efficient protocols are in place. Council, through the LDMG, retains primary responsibility for managing disaster events contained within the local government area.
