Research to Drive Change
The Bushfire CRC Research to Drive Change online forum series continues, with research into effective incident management to be showcased next Monday 29 September at 12.30pm.
The Beyond the Incident forum, featuring Dr Christine Owen and Dr Ben Brooks (University of Tasmania), Dr Chris Bearman (CQUniversity) and end user Geoff Conway, will discuss Bushfire CRC research on incident management performance. The study has improved the understanding of how multi-agency emergency management coordination at regional and state levels (and at a national level in New Zealand) could be improved in order to reduce the consequences to communities of an emergency. More details are available at the Bushfire CRC website.
Each forum has featured a short video, all of which were showcased at the recent Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC and AFAC annual conference in Wellington via a purpose-built stand and tablet.
