The Western Australian Prescribed Burning Forum 2017, The Burning Question: Now & Beyond was held in Busselton in August 2017.
The Forum was hosted by the Office of Bushfire Risk Management, in partnership with the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, and the Office of Emergency Management.
The Forum brought together over 120 leading prescribed burn practitioners from across Western Australia, alongside interstate representatives to share their experience and perspectives. The program also included a field trip to allow for observation and study of prescribed burning challenges and best practice within the region.
The Office also acknowledges the generous support of the Forum provided by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department through the Natural Disaster Resilience and the National Bushfire Mitigation Programs.
