A NEW BUSHFIRE FRONT HAS IGNITED!

Dismayed by the disastrous bushfires in the eastern States over the summer of 2002/2003, a group of like-minded and concerned practitioners and scientists formed FOREST FIRE VICTORIA (Inc*) in February 2004.

 Statement of Purpose

  • To provide and promote independent and expert opinion on forest fire management;

  • To ensure that Victoria’s forest fire management policies and practices are based on science, experience and accountability; and address social, economic and environmental values of natural ecosystems;

  • To ensure that the long-term well-being and safety of forest ecosystems and their surrounding rural communities are protected.

 

Our method of operation

Forest Fire (Vic) Inc. will seek opportunities to pursue its purpose

through a range of strategies including:

  • Making submissions to enquiries;

  • Providing experts for seminars, conferences and media
    opportunities;

  • Exposing the consequences and dangers of distorted science
    and misinformation;

  • Bringing problems and solutions to the attention of politicians
    and decision-makers;

  • Raising awareness of forest fire issues through the media and
    community education;

  • Supporting independent and objective research and education
    into forest fire management; and
