Greater Shepparton City Council has a Municipal Emergency Management Plan which sets out key responsibilities, contact people and actions during an emergency including Council's arrangements with other support agencies and emergency services.

The Greater Shepparton City Council Municipal Emergency Management Plan (MEMP) is produced pursuant to Section 20(1) of the Emergency Management Act 1986.

The Plan addresses emergency prevention, response and recovery within the Greater Shepparton municipality and is the result of the co-operative efforts of the Emergency Management Planning Committee with assistance from Victoria State Emergency Service North East Regional Office.
