Project details

The purpose of the project is to enable the translation and utilisation of this new knowledge into Fire Behaviour Analyst, Intelligence Officer and more general fireground professional development training programs and workshops – to enable its application in risk communication, operationalisation for bushfire situational awareness and fireground safety advice for fire crews.
