This special collaboration between the ABC Regional, Landline and Background Briefing teams is simply a must listen.
The podcast covers some very interesting topics including the critical need for local control and knowledge when managing major fires, the future of Australia’s volunteer fire services and the impact that changing seasonal weather patterns are having on important support tools such as aerial fire appliances.
It’s a fairly long article, but well worth the listen for those who believe a centralised model is superior.
