Following the Victorian 2009 Black Saturday Bushfire catastrophe, various recommendations were made by the Royal Commission to mitigate the effects of future bushfire events.
Unfortunately, very few of the recommendations have been applied.
In the 2013 – 2014 bushfire season, severe bushfires broke out all across Australia, including WA, NT, QLD, NSW and VIC.
This intelligence estimate focusses upon the recent Hazelwood Coal Mine fire near Morwell, Victoria. This facility is a Vital Asset.
