Summary

The Guideline for multiple burn casualties outlines the response strategies required for an incident resulting in multiple burn casualties in Victoria. In particular, it describes the means by which the state’s two burn services will support and respond to an incident involving multiple burn casualties.

The Guideline for multiple burn casualties should be read in conjunction with the State health emergency response plan (SHERP), which provides overarching direction to the entire Victorian health sector, the Department of Health & Human Services and other government sectors in the event of a health-related emergency.
