Not long now everybody!
Have a look at our fantastic inFIRE Conference 2012 Programme.
We are looking forward to seeing you here in Wellington.
The programme with all the latest updates is available now.
Additions to the programme include:
- Smita Bismas, Tauranga City Library – Recording Rena: How Tauranga City Library created a record of the Rena disaster, and a fabulous real time resource for all
This paper will look to explain the use of research, data and information prior to and during these two events. Focussing on where research and data was received and sourced from and then applied as information at the emergency to assist the building search and operational management of the Christchurch CBD Red Zone emergency management needs from each of the two major quakes.
The session will give conference delegates the opportunity to explore first hand the necessary pre event research and data processes that are called upon to accumulate key information to act upon to manage the complexities of such a major emergency event.
The discussion will provide a wider view for both national and international events and what research, data and information is required for such an event and will provide a demonstration of how it is turned into information to manage and define the priorities and needs of a major emergency event.
A big thank you to two companies for agreeing to sponsor the inFIRE Conference:
Sheila Pantry & Associates Ltd for sponsoring our Reach Morning Tea, on Friday 2 March
Do you want to see more of New Zealand while you are here? A small group will be touring the country before and after the conference. The mini-tour will start on 20th February. For more information contact Elizabeth Hides at FESA.
You have heard about the spectacular inFIRE 2012 conference programme, but have you heard how spectacular Wellington is?
I often think that Wellington is small but perfectly formed. It’s easy to get around, and the waterfront is gorgeous. Great coffee too … not that I am obsessed or anything!
We will be taking in a couple of sites as part of the programme … a ferry across the harbour to Day’s Bay for conference dinner at Cobar, the cable car to the Wellington Botanic Garden, waterfront wanders …
You may also want to check out:
- Te Papa Tongarewa, Museum of New Zealand (just on that fab waterfront)
- Zealandia, the Karori Sancturary Experience – native flora and fauna just minutes from the CBD
- Weta Cave – for Lord of the Rings fans, and all things Weta Studios
For more fabulous places to visit check out the Know Wellington website.
And … did you know there were vineyards just over them thar hills? For those who would like to venture a tiny bit further afield you could check out wineries in the Wairarapa, or take a ferry across Cook Strait to Picton, the Marlborough Sounds and more amazing wineries.
Go on, you know you want to! Join us at inFIRE 2012, in Wellington.
