QFES Live Fire Campus

Last week, students and staff from UQ Fire spent the day at the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) fire training facilities. During a visit to QFES’ Wythe Island facilities, we geared up in full protective equipment and went over some of the many training exercises and demonstrations at Wythe Island.

For us at UQ Fire, this is a great opportunity to understand fire beyond what we learn in the classroom or see in our laboratory. Special thanks to QFES’ Shane Hanschen, Darryl Witt, Sven Diga,  Ted Simmonds, and Michael Conway for making this possible.
