Valuing volunteers

Valuing volunteers was the theme for the 2016 Western Australia Fire and Emergency Services conference in Perth, which brought together around 400 volunteers, association representatives and representatives from emergency services, government and private sectors from across Western Australia.

The event was presented by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services at the Perth Entertainment Centre,  from 9-11 September 2016.

For the third consecutive year, the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC were invited to participate in this annual conference with a display in the exhibition area. The display was busy all weekend with volunteers keen to learn about new research and other activities under way at the national level.
