AFAC Conference – ORH present the DCT with FRNSW


In the first week of September, ORH attended the annual AFAC conference in Wellington, NZ.  The theme of the conference was ‘learning from adversity’ and ORH’s presentation formed part of the urban impact assessment stream.  Further details on the conference are available here.

In tandem with Mark Brown, Assistant Commissioner at Fire and Rescue New South Wales, we demonstrated how the Dynamic Cover Tool has become a key part of the Service’s control room operations.  Focusing on the October 2013 bushfires, the presentation explained how the DCT provided a high level of confidence in decisions regarding resource deployment during this major emergency.
