AFAC Operational Review into the Tasmanian Bushfires 2018-19
Tasmania's fire agencies have worked in partnership to complete all the recommendations from the AFAC review into the operational response to the 2018/19 bushfire season. Several recommendations require ongoing policy and project work to implement, however this work is well under way. Tasmania's fire agencies welcomed the review into the management of what was a challenging and extraordinary bushfire season. The implementation of the review recommendations has resulted in better coordination and cooperation between fire agencies, as evidenced during the 2019/20 bushfire season. The Review provided invaluable learnings and recommendations that have helped the three fire agencies enhance and improve our cooperative working partnerships and improve our response and preparedness capabilities.
