									Overview of Victorian Rapid Impact
Assessment (RIA)




A Victorian Government partnership project   March 2010
What is RIA?

The Victorian Rapid Impact Assessment (RIA)
framework is a standard process for collecting,
confirming and distributing impact intelligence within
24-48 hours of an emergency.
Rapid Impact Assessment aims
to assist with:
• Identification of the impact on the community
• Government and agency understanding of the extent of an
  emergency
• Response and recovery strategies
• Increasing public confidence in the
  agency response
Why RIA?

  The RIA was deployed in response to:
    - 2006/07 Great Divide Bushfires
    - 2007 Gippsland Floods
    - 2009 Black Saturday Bushfires
    - March 2010 Hailstorm
These deployments demonstrated that the Victorian
RIA framework provides critical intelligence for
improved response to and recovery from emergencies,
as well as crucial information for government and the
community.
