Dan Neely to speak at CFA State Forum
City of Wellington’s Dan Neely has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at this year’s CFA-SES Community Engagement & Hazard Awareness State Forum in Creswick.
Now in its 5th year, the event for CFA members with an interest in their community’s safety has teamed up with VIC-SES and the 2015 theme is ‘Community Connections – Let’s Join Forces’.
Dan is the Manager of Community Resilience at Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) in New Zealand and was the highlight of the 2014 AFAC Conference in Wellington. He has a long and fascinating history in community development and disaster management around the world.
Originally from Arizona and now settled in New Zealand, Dan wrote WREMO’s Community Resilience Strategy. This strategy has since become the foundation document for an International Centre of Excellence in Community Resilience through the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction.
