Fire in the High Country forum
A Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre forum on fire in the high country will be held this week in Albury.
This two-day forum will present the latest research findings to operational fire managers with the aim of raising awareness and providing opportunities for researchers and operational fire managers to interact and discuss the major issues.
Many years of research have been dedicated to investigating fire management issues in the high country of Australia with particular reference to fuel loads and fuel management.
The Bushfire CRC, through its HighFire project and other research in the high country, has gathered findings that will be useful for fire practitioners in their operational activities.
More than 100 interested participants from Victoria, New South Wales and the ACT have registered to attend the event.
