Aboriginal people of Victoria, also known as Koori people, are under-engaged in emergency services agencies in Victoria through communication, public outreach, volunteerism, and employment. The purpose of this project is to understand the disconnect between Koori communities and emergency services agencies in Victoria by utilising methods such as interviews and meetings with representatives from the Koori community and these agencies. The project will result in recommendations on ways to influence increased engagement of Koori community members in emergency services agencies.
