One of Victoria's former top cops will lead the review into Ambulance Victoria's handling of the deadly thunderstorm asthma event that hit Melbourne.

Tim Cartwright, who was acting Victoria Police chief commissioner in 2015, will review the response to the world's worst recorded thunderstorm asthma attack, which killed eight people in Melbourne two weeks ago.

"We know there were a number of families who lost loved ones and it is essential we review every aspect of our response so we can learn lessons from events such as this," Ambulance Victoria chief executive Tony Walker said on Saturday.
