Four years of highlights and achievements
The last Hazard News for 2017 showcases all the best bits of our research, utilisation and engagement activities since 2013.
Issue Four 2017 of Fire Australia includes research on including animals in emergency planning, details from AFAC17, new priorities in natural hazards research, and a Black Saturday case study to develop guidelines for improved community messaging in bushfires.
Partners in the CRC will receive the publication Highlights and Achievements 2013-2017. In a departure from the usual annual report format, this report is an overview of the first four years of the CRC’s eight-year funding period, based around the projects, the people and the organisations that contributed to the overall success of the centre.
The last edition of Fire Australia for 2017 is now available, featuring key research from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC.
The 2009 Black Saturday bushfires made history as one of Australia's deadliest and costliest peacetime tragedies. A new industry guideline helps us learn from this tragic event.
For the first time, Australia's most significant natural hazard emergency management issues have been drawn up by the sector's leaders to guide research over the next decade. Now available online for broader discussion, the priorities arose from national workshops with the emergency management sector.
The sector's premier annual conference and exhibition, AFAC17 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, was held from 4-7 September 2017 at the International Convention Centre Sydney.
Incident management research from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC has helped the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services assess operations during Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie earlier this year.
The call for abstracts for AFAC18 powered by INTERSCHUTZ, the CRC's annual conference with AFAC, is now open. All CRC projects are expected to submit an abstract, with the conference being a major avenue to the fire, land management and emergency services industry.
