Wildfires 2015 Conference, 10-11 November

Over 150 delegates have signed up to attend this important conference. There are 34 confirmed speakers, 15 poster presentations and more than 20 exhibitors. Can you afford not to be there? There are still some spaces available - see the website.

Against this high level of activity, and maybe because of it, the Scottish Wildfire Forum has been nominated in the ‘Partnership of the Year’ category for this year’s Excellence in Fire and Emergency Awards. In accepting the nomination, Deputy Assistant Chief Officer Andy Coueslant, the chairman of the Forum, commented that the nomination "is clearly down to the many years of hard work done by the Forum and its members".
