Wildfires are one of the most destructive natural disasters that exist on earth. Wildfire hazards have consequences that extend past the extinguishing of the fire including health concerns, flash flooding, and more. To reduce risk to the threat of wildfires, organizations must prepare before a fire breaks out. Our environmental intelligence team is monitoring the brushfires in Australia.

WorldAware intelligence alerts give you timely notification of any significant travel, safety, and security-related incidents that could impact your organization or people. Getting timely notification of such issues or incidents, with applied analysis, gives you and your people the advantage to prepare for wildfires and mitigate the threat to your organization and operations.
