FYI – Issue 100 of the Bushfire CRC’s Fire Note has just been released. To mark the occasion this special edition looks back at some Fire Notes with impact.
The Bushfire CRC was established in 2003 following the 2001-2002 Sydney bush fires. The first Fire Note was published in 2005 and has been an invaluable source of information and communication regarding the centre’s research into fire prevention and management. The focus has broadened over time to include emergency management which now dominates our national agenda.
The RFS has collaborated with the CRC on projects in the areas of community engagement and volunteer recruitment and retention including;
Fire Note 15 Bushfire Community Engagement Programs
Fire Note 23 Recruiting and Retaining Women Fire Service Volunteers
It has also provided facilities at Eurobodalla and Mogo to conduct experiments including;
Fire Note 69 Passenger Vehicle Burnover in Bushfires
