John Arkinstall

A retired mathematician, I chair the Hazelwood Jeeralang community association, and am active in advocacy groups Voices of the Valley locally, and the Alphaone association, my respiratory illness community, nationally. After being hit by Black Saturday, I worked on smoke, air quality, bushfire awareness and recovery, arson and bush crime awareness in various ways and forums. I spoke on this at the 2016 Living with Brushfires conference.
