Queensland fire preparedness recognised in Queensland Resilient Australia Awards

“With the devastation of last year’s fire season still vivid in people’s minds, it is particularly pleasing to see the strong demand for information to better prepare for future fire seasons,” says Julie McLellan, CEO of Healthy Land and Water - the natural resource management group for South East Queensland and home to the Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium.
