A Municipal Emergency Coordination Centre (MECC) is a facility which brings together key agencies, to coordinate the provision of council and community resources during an emergency for the response and recovery effort. The MECC facilitates activities of key personnel from local and state government agencies, emergency services and others as required to assist.
A Municipal Emergency Coordination Centre may be activated by any member of the municipal Emergency Management Coordination Group (EMCG), which includes the:
- Municipal Emergency Response Coordinator (MERC)
- Municipal Emergency Resource Officer (MERO)
- Municipal Recovery Manager (MRM)
Municipal Emergency Coordination Centres are often established within Council facilities.
