The 2009 Bushfires Royal Commission heard evidence on issues including insurance and the funding of fire services, mapping, firefighter safety and information sharing during the sixth block of hearings held in March.

The Commission also received oral submissions on electricity and the resourcing of IMTs, and continued its investigation into the causes and circumstances of deaths.

This video blog is designed to update members on the latest from the 2009 Bushfires Royal Commission, as well as offering another way to ask questions about the work of the Royal Commission.

The commission's public hearings draw to a close at the end of May, and I will continue to provide regular video updates throughout the final weeks.

 The commissioners' final report will be delivered to the State Government on July 31.

I invite you to ask any questions about the work of the Task Force and the Royal Commission by responding to this blog. I will provide an answer on Connect so everyone can share the information.

Please note: At the time of recording this blog it was unclear whether Christine Nixon would be recalled to the Royal Commission. It is now confirmed that Ms Nixon will appear before the Commission on Wednesday 13 April.
