On Tuesday 17 April, Council will conduct an exercise to practise its response to an emergency within the City of Glen Eira.

To be held at Caulfield Park Pavilion, the exercise will involve more than 80 people, including representatives from Victoria Police, Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Victoria State Emergency Service, Red Cross and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Glen Eira Mayor Cr Tony Athanasopoulos said it’s important for Council to test its ability to respond quickly and calmly to an emergency situation where the local community could be at risk.

"Training exercises such as this will help bring peace of mind to everyone who has a connection to the City of Glen Eira," he said.

Council is conducting the exercise in accordance with its responsibilities under the Emergency Management Act 1986.
