Forums for fire prone regions

LEARNING to live with bushfires is the subject of a program of community events aimed at promoting fire preparedness, planning and coordination around managing bushfire risk.


Gulf Savannah NRM is delivering the program entitled “Living with Fire” through events at Irvinebank, Dimbulah, Chillagoe and Biboohra. 

The free events will provide local people with an opportunity to meet fi re managers and NRM staff , to learn about resources and tools for understanding fire in their area, and to share insights and lessons learned from recent wildfire experiences.

This will help equip local communities to understand and prepare for wildfire in their immediate rural districts. 

The Irvinebank session was held on Tuesday, with Dimbulah to follow on Thursday 31 March at the Dimbulah Soccer Club from 6pm-8pm.

The Chillagoe session will be held at the town hall on Tuesday 5 April from 6pm-8pm, followed by the Biboohra session which will be held at the state school on Thursday 7 April from 6pm- 8pm. 

Food will be provided. Bookings are essential:  https://gulfsavannahnrm.eventbrite.com/
