Peter West

I have lived in Rawson for 20 years and worked that time with the Department both in forest management and bushfire management. I have been involved in a number of community fire education programs including the Tyers Art Festival Bushfire Photo Exhibitions, Forest Fire School camps and the 2014 and 2015 Living with Bushfire conferences. I have a role in incident management at bushfires and currently lead a planning team using the phoenix computer model to help assess bushfire risk and develop effective bushfire mitigation programs including planned burning. I chair the working group.
