QFES Commissioner to open 2020 Fire Science Seminar Series - Facing Fire in a Changing Climate

An exciting 3-day fire seminar series for Queensland is being opened tomorrow by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner Greg Leach.

The first of three seminars, tomorrow is being delivered as part of the Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium’s online Seminar Series, showcasing the latest science and information on fire preparedness, fire management and climate, and looking at last season’s devastating bushfires.

Drawing on his extensive career with the Victorian Country Fire Authority and the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board, Commissioner Leach will be sure to engage attendees with his first-hand experience and understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing adaptive bushfire management and planning. With over 30 years’ experience in the emergency services sector, Commissioner Leach brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with attendees.

With the theme “Facing Fire in a Changing Climate”, the seminar series starts on 10 November and is being delivered over three consecutive Tuesdays (from 9:30am – 11am). Over the three days, the series is showcasing applied fire ecology and fire management projects, with a focus on climate change and fire climatology. This year, we are also taking a closer look at the 2019/20 fire season in Queensland, its significance and impacts upon our ecological values.
