Seeking women firefighters concerned about climate change

Posted on 13 Mar, 2019

The Cli­mate Media Cen­tre (www​.cli​mate​me​di​a​cen​tre​.org​.au) is seek­ing women fire­fight­ers con­cerned about cli­mate change.

The impact of Cli­mate Change on the fre­quen­cy and inten­si­ty of bush­fires is becom­ing increas­ing­ly clear. We are seek­ing women fire­fight­ers who can talk about this from their own expe­ri­ence to the media.

Our aim here at the Cli­mate Media Cen­tre is to get that mes­sage about cli­mate change out into the media through the direct expe­ri­ences of real” peo­ple, not just fire­fight­ers but also farm­ers, health work­ers, sports peo­ple, insur­ers etc.

For­mer NSW Fire and Res­cue Com­mis­sion­er, Greg Mullins is one of our lead­ing spokes­peo­ple at the Cli­mate Coun­cil. He speaks often in the media on the impact of cli­mate change and his obser­va­tions of how fire­fight­ers are increas­ing­ly on the front line of more intense and dan­ger­ous bushfires.

If you are inter­est­ed in becom­ing a poten­tial spokesper­son on this issue, we would be hap­py to train you how to engage with the media dur­ing inter­views – all for free – in order to get that mes­sage out there.
