The AFAC powered by INTERSCHUTZ conference brings together a broad spectrum of emergency management practitioners together to learn and share experiences.

Showcasing the latest research and practice across the sector, AFAC21 will feature the multi-streamed AFAC Conference, incorporating the Institution of Fire Engineers (Australia) National Conference and the Australian Disaster Resilience Conference.

AFAC21 Theme : Balancing impact and expectations

As recent emergency events have shown, there’s an evolving extreme that is producing new challenges in terms of impact on the community, environment and economies.

The community expects the emergency management sector to stay ahead of these events but with resourcing challenges, overlapping seasons here and abroad, and the surge in reviews inquiries and recommendations, what do agencies do differently?

AFAC21 will focus on how we manage the consequences of major events and meet the expectations of the community and government. The program will explore how the sector can continue to learn and find opportunities to deliver with new and innovative approaches.
