Northern Australia Fire Managers Forum 2018

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

The event will be held on 26 June with the intended outcome of the meeting being 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 trips will be held overnight from 27 June at Hidden Valley Cabins, with all the details to be shared once the agenda is finalised. The cabins are shared accommodation and are strictly limited, therefore allocation will be preferential to interstate participants. Camping is also available. There is no booking required for camp-sites, however participants must bring their own sleeping equipment. The field trip will return to Townsville airport around 3pm on Thursday 28 June.

The NAFM Forum 2018 will be 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.

Please note this event is by invitation only.
