Partners get northern research update

End-users and researchers met in Darwin this week to discuss the range of CRC research underway across northern Australia.

Representatives from the Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service, Bushfires NT, Northern Territory SES, the Northern Territory Government, Queensland’s Inspector-General Emergency Management and WA’s Department of Fire and Emergency Services heard from CRC researchers at Charles Darwin University about projects aimed at building community resilience in remote areas, training EM responders in remote communities and savanna fire management.

Also discussed was the linkages these projects have with other CRC projects underway investigating improving communications and warnings, and developing a national resilience measurement tool.

Across the two days, discussions centred on capability, resilience and communication, and how the research can support government and emergency managers achieve their goals in these crucial areas for a range of natural hazards - cyclones, floods and bushfires - across northern Australia.
