RFA Provides Comprehensive Training in Regulatory Affairs
PUBLIC NOTICE – Australian Bushfires - Update
Following on from last month’s note of RFA’s appreciation of support from our many readers, here and overseas, this is the latest news update regarding Australia’s long hot summer of bushfires. The good news is that over the last few weeks, much of Eastern Australia has received widespread soaking rains that have snuffed out the last of these dreadful bushfires. However, the drought persists in many places and will take more rain still before we can declare the drought to be properly ‘broken’. For now, the rebuilding can begin.
Thank you once again for all your interest and care shown to us through this difficult time.
Postscript: The loss of lives, including three American pilots; the massive loss of wildlife and habitat; and the severe impact on our communities after several months of bushfire has left us physically strained and emotionally frazzled. So, it was with much joy and gratitude that that we tuned in to the internationally supported Fire Fight Australia concert held recently in Sydney. Artists from around the world gave freely of their time and talent in order to entertain more than 75,000 people in the audience as well as millions more via media. 22 acts performed over 10 hours and raised more than $10 million for bushfire relief. Rock band Queen reprised the same set they played in the 1984 Live Aid concert! On behalf of all Australians, we would like to thank once again the many global citizens who have responded to our trials with such generous care and concern. It has been very much appreciated.
