Independent review (SA 2019/20 Bushfires)

The 2019/20 bushfire season was one of the worst the state has ever endured, with the devastating loss of lives, homes, properties, livestock and wildlife during blazes in the Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Yorke Peninsula, Eyre Peninsula and the South-East. In the immediate aftermath the State Government announced an independent review to be conducted by former Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty AO with the support of the South Australian Fire and Emergency Services Commission (SAFECOM) and experts from across our emergency services sector.

The intent was to look at how the state responded and what lessons could be applied for future bushfire seasons.
