Join other Members of the Institute of Civil Infrastructure at The Tea Room – QVB to hear civil-specific NSW bushfire disaster insights from the Minister for Emergency Services and the RFS Commissioner.
NSW has just faced its toughest fire season in living memory. From September for five months the Rural Fire Service drew on the civil construction industry to support its firefighting efforts with equipment and personnel. While too early in the process to settle on reforms, ex-CEO of the CCF NSW, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, David Elliott MP, and the new Head of the RFS, Commissioner Rob Rogers, will enlighten the audience on the pressure points they experienced in managing civil industry resources, and share some of their first order take-outs. This will be a fascinating ‘behind the scenes’ insight into what happened and a preparation for what we as an industry do next.
