Northern Australia Fire Managers Forum 2018

Fire managers from across the north of Australia were invited to discuss topics of current interest to the tropical savannas at the North Australia Fire Managers (NAFM) forum held in Townsville, Queensland on 26 June.

The intended outcome of the meeting was to finalse the annual Bushfire Seasonal Outlook for northern Australia. The Outlook will be publicly distributed as a Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Hazard Note.

This year, the field trip was held overnight from 27 June at Hidden Valley Cabins.

The NAFM Forum 2018 was hosted by the Queensland members – Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and the Department of Environment and Science - with the support of the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC.
