MAV sets up disaster response HR sharing database
The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) has set up an online Human Resource Sharing Database to help member councils simplify the process for inter-council resource sharing during the current bushfire crisis and for future emergencies.
The database will:
- list all council-to-council offers of assistance to fire-affected councils
- enable the MAV to sort offers by location, skillset and availability
- ensure fire-affected councils are connected with the most suitable support, as quickly as possible.
As of Friday, 17 January, 50 councils had joined the database with almost 200 offers of assistance already listed in the system.
According to an announcement on the MAV website, council CEOs have been asked to nominate a single point of contact to gather and input each council’s offers of support.
