NNMU (George Campus) / SAIF Fire Symposium 2014

Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (George Campus) and Southern African Institute of Forestry (SAIF) invite you to the 10th Fire Management Symposium

Date: 9 - 10 September 2014

Background and purpose

One of the aims of this symposium is to transfer technical knowledge to fire managers. In the context of the catastrophic veldfires that destroy thousands of hectares of veld in South Africa yearly, this is an event not to be missed, as the ± 200 delegates who attend it annually can confirm. Join fire managers and authorities from different disciplines and different land uses (Nature Conservation, Agriculture, Disaster Management, Forestry,
Local Authorities, etc.) to network and exchange ideas.


The focus of this year's event will be on controversial legal matters, environmental impacts of fires, new technology as well as interesting fire management concepts.

Below is a questionnaire that we kindly ask you to complete - the results of this questionnaire will be presented to you at the event.
