Fire ecology and management

The emergency management sector is unique in its ability to connect diverse communities. Through collaboration, engagement and partnerships, links are formed which bind us together. These links are enabled by technology and infrastructure that facilitate networks that are not limited by space, distance or time.

Through building connections, we are learning and working together to prepare for new challenges we face in a changing climate. We are sharing responsibility and are building resilience in ourselves, our workplaces, our communities and the systems that support us.

AFAC20 will explore how an inclusive approach across fire and emergency service agencies, is integral to reducing risk and fostering resilience now and into the future.
