Podcast: Ex-fire chief Greg Mullins on worsening bushfires

written by Robyn Tongol | October 5, 2021

It seems like an age ago now, but pre-COVID, Australia was battling another crisis with its ‘Black Summer’ bushfires – the worst in living memory.

In this episode of the Australian Aviation Podcast, former NSW fire commissioner Greg Mullins explains why climate change means bigger fires will soon be a regular reality.

He also talks to host Adam Thorn about the state of play with our aerial firefighting fleet and why the federal government must do more to prevent another disaster.

Finally, Mullins speaks about the reality of fighting fires on the front line, and why it runs in his blood.

    Great listening to Greg, I hope after an election and this coming season the Federal Govt will change their approach. Poor old NAFC and AFAC are the meat in a horrible sandwich here. Would love to see Greg and other fire chiefs involved as part of a national approach.
