from IAEM

Secretary of the Department of Justice Greg Wilson on July 28 appointed former Director General of Emergency Management Australia, Tony Pearce, as the inaugural Inspector-General for Emergency Management in the State Government of Victoria, Australia. In his new role as inspector-general, Pearce will help provide the government and the community with confidence in the state's emergency management arrangements. The role of inspector-general is part of the Victorian Government's reforms to emergency management and the commencement of the Emergency Management Act 2013. It replaces the previous role of Emergency Services Commissioner. The reforms will implement an "all-hazards, all-agencies" approach to emergency management and include the new role of Emergency Management Commissioner and the overarching body Emergency Management Victoria. Pearce "is the former Director General of Emergency Management Australia, where he coordinated the Australian Government's response to numerous domestic and international emergencies, including the Black Saturday fires," noted Kim Wells, Minister for Police and Emergency Services and Bushfire Response.
