A 21st CENTURY CHALLENGE
Bushfires and wildfires are costing the global economy over $100 billion every year, causing thousands of deaths, destroying countless homes and devastating millions of hectares of property.
Powerful new technologies hold the key to predicting, preventing, fighting & recovering from bushfire emergencies around the world.
Promising technology companies are harnessing drones, robotics, machine learning, 5G networks and IOT to create next generation FireTech solutions. However, adoption of these solutions has been slow due to legacy approaches and bureaucratic inertia.
FireTech Connect is helping to speed up adoption of these solutions by:
- Fast-tracking the commercial readiness of promising companies.
- Connecting, informing and supporting the sector's transformation.
