Planning support for caravan parks online now
Victoria SES, in partnership with emergency services across Victoria, have recently completed a template to assist Victorian caravan park owner/operators create an emergency management plan (EMP) for their parks.
The Caravan Park EMP template can be used online or downloaded and filled in manually either as a hard copy or word document. Both formats include helpful suggestions, examples and fact sheets to assist in the development of a plan. On completion of the template, caravan park operators will have identified the major risks to their parks by conducting a risk assessment and listed treatments that can reduce the impact of the risk.
The template has been designed to meet the requirements of the Residential Tenancies (Caravan Parks and Movable Dwellings Registration and Standards) Regulations 2010 which states that in order to be registered, all caravan park owners and operators must have an emergency management plan developed in consultation with the local council and relevant emergency services agencies. By following the steps in the template developed by emergency services, caravan park owners will be fulfilling this requirement.
The template is available here on the SES website.
SES is also delivering workshops throughout Victoria to assist caravan park owner/ operators write an emergency management plan using one of the provided templates. Please contact your local council if you are interested in attending or send an email to email@example.com to register your interest.
