With the increasing risk of bushfire due to climate change, we have arranged for a Fire Tasmania community rep, based in Launceston, to address our meeting.

As this can be a fraught time for Fire Tasmania, if there is a fire emergency we have the option of watching a film on bushfires provided by Fire Tasmania.

The meeting will cover the following aspects:

  • Dr. Midj Jones, recently retired meterorologist, will talk about the historical changes in climate and weather which account for the severity of the latest bushfires.
  • David Cleaver, Tasmanian Fire Service Community Development Officer will speak about best practice in dealing with the type of bushfires now being experienced in Tasmania, and will answer your questions.
  • ATA North committee members will also speak briefly. Julie Hargreaves will present her bushfire landscape planning and Bruce Jackson will talk about arrangements for animals.
