The Australian Emergency Management Institute (AEMI) is a Centre of Excellence for knowledge and capability development in the national emergency management sector. As a part of the Attorney-General's Department, Emergency Management Australia division, AEMI coordinates a range of education, training, professional development, information, research and community awareness services to the nation and our region.
After nearly 60 years at Mount Macedon, Victoria, AEMI has moved to Canberra. The Institute will continue delivering products and service, with the full transition realised by 1 July 2015.
Many of the Institute’s current programs will continue with the development of new products and services for the emergency management sector, including workshops, seminars, master classes and other events, bringing together practitioners, policy makers and other key stakeholders to build knowledge and collegiality at a senior level. The Institute is changing aspects of how it delivers emergency management capability development, but our ongoing role is assured.
Ongoing products and services of AEMI encompass community awareness programs, school education activities, the Australian Emergency Management Knowledge Hub, the EM Library, and the Australian Emergency Management Handbook Series and the Australian Journal of Emergency Management.
The Institute has played a significant role in driving national emergency management capability and disaster resilience for close to six decades and will do so well into the future, with its influence reaching across Australia and regions of interest.
