Re­cov­ery fo­cus for work­shop

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

MUN­DAR­ING Shire co-hosted a work­shop to re­in­force bush­fire re­cov­ery as a pri­or­ity in the re­gion.

The re­cent sem­i­nar with Perth NRM is part of the sus­tain­abil­ity group’s pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment in en­vi­ron­men­tal man­age­ment se­ries.

Mun­dar­ing Shire en­vi­ron­ment and sus­tain­abil­ity co-or­di­na­tor Bri­ony Mo­ran said the sem­i­nar was de­signed to build knowl­edge and skills of those in­volved in post-bush­fire re­cov­ery, restora­tion and con­ser­va­tion in the Swan re­gion.

“The dis­cus­sion cov­ered many as­pects of post-bush­fire re­cov­ery in­clud­ing weed con­trol, na­tive an­i­mal re­cov­ery and man­ag­ing the move­ment of ma­chin­ery and peo­ple on site af­ter the fire is out,” she said.

The panel in­cluded rep­re­sen­ta­tives from City of Swan fire and emer­gency ser­vices and was at­tended by gov­ern­ment agency and com­mu­nity lead­ers.
