AFAC Annual Reports : 2011 Annual Report
Darwin 2010 a resounding success More than 900 ﬁre and emergency services personnel attended the annual AFAC and Bushﬁre CRC conference in Darwin from around Australia, New Zealand and the Paciﬁc Region. The AFAC and Bushﬁre CRC annual conference has grown to be one of the most signiﬁcant events for the emergency management sector in the region. AFAC has played a lead role in facilitating closer working relationships between all ﬁre and emergency service agencies and the talented and committed people who work in our sector. The annual conference is a wonderful opportunity for them to network, strengthen those relationships, broaden their knowledge and gain exposure to new and innovative products and services through one of the largest trade shows for the emergency management sector. Over the three days of the conference, delegates heard from expert speakers and researchers from around the world on topics as diverse as; the mental effects of trauma in emergency services, ﬁre and carbon sequestration, cyclone threat, planning, forecasting and bushﬁres. Former High Court Judge, the Hon Michael Kirby, gave the opening address, setting the tone for the conference and challenging delegates to reﬂect on the Royal Commission into the February 2009 bushﬁres and the national implications of the ensuing recommendations. The conference, now in its 17th year was again very well received by the industry. An extensive evaluation survey was conducted post the conference with more than 85% of attendees rating the conference very good or excellent.
