Projects and research
Fire & Rescue NSW works with many government agencies and research institutions on a variety of key projects and research programs. Below are some of the key projects we are involved with.
Fire Research Report Research Tests: Hoarding Fire Behaviour
Fire Research Report Research Tests: Hoarding Fire Behaviour In July 2014, Fire & Rescue NSW conducted two ‘build it burn it’ test burns at the CSIRO test research laboratory simulating bedroom fires with differing hoarding levels. The outcomes and findings are available here.
Impacts of Natural Disasters and Fire Emergencies Framework Project
The Impacts Project will deliver a better understanding of the full social, economic and environmental impacts of natural disasters and fire emergencies. This will help governments, communities and emergency service organisations like ourselves, to decide where to allocate investment to increase community safety and reduce the impacts of emergencies and disaster. Learn about the Impacts of Natural Disasters and Fire Emergencies Framework Project.
Data Dictionary Project
The Data Dictionary Project will deliver a nationally consistent system of data collection and reporting for the prevention, preparedness, response and recovery activities of Australian emergency service organisations, primarily urban and rural fire brigades, and state and territory emergency services.
