Post Bush Fire Management in the Swan Region

Post Bush Fire Management in the Swan Region

August 23, 2017 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Shire of Mundaring, 7000 Great Eastern Hwy, Mundaring WA 6073, Australia

Professional Development in Environmental Management Series.
This seminar will focus on critical stages of post bush fire planning and management to build knowledge and skills of those involved in post fire recovery, restoration and conservation.

Fire management is a complex and ongoing part of managing our natural resources. Even with considerable planning to reduce the occurrence of bush fires and minimise their impact, they still regularly occur in the Swan Region. This requires practitioners and community leaders to form teams quickly to engage with the public to support social structures, and successfully manage the recovery of natural and built environments.

A panel will discuss their experiences of managing various aspects of environmental recovery post fire including weed management, native animal recovery and movement of machinery and people, on site. The critical aspect of working with the local community and directing their engagement will also be covered.

Local government staff, fire management teams and key community leaders who have influence on direction and action of environmental management following a bush fire in natural areas of the Swan Region’s urban and peri-urban areas are encouraged to attend.

COST $25 per person (light lunch provided)
