Conference presentation: NIWA & Scion

Issue date:

UFBA Conference keynote speaker recordings for Scion “Connection with science and technology” and NIWA “Connection through Climate Change” are now available on our website for you to view and share with your brigade.


Scion have also said they would love to learn more about members experiences and needs as firefighters. If you have been at a fire in a native forest, and could spare 5 minutes to fill out this questionnaire, it would contribute to their current work evaluating fire risk in native forests: https://forms.gle/WZBHsRGorS8nHmGe9.
