Abstract:
The Hazelwood mine fire was caused by embers from bushfires in the surrounding area, and caused a major complex fire emergency and a serious public health emergency.  The inquiry investigated:
  • the origin of the fire
  • the firefighting response
  • fire prevention and preparedness measures taken by the owner, operator and licensee of the mine and regulatory agencies
  • the fire’s impacts on the health and wellbeing of affected communities, and
  • the response to the health emergency.
