We have been watching in horror as more than 10 million hectares (100,000 sq km or 24.7 million acres) of bush, forest and parks have burned across Australia in the past few months. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and thousands of families displaced. 30 people have been killed, including 4 firefighters.
While recent rain and cooler conditions have slowed the fires, there are still dozens burning across the country and conditions are expected to worsen again in many areas in the coming weeks. There are potentially still months left in the 2019/2020 bushfire season.
Compliant Learning Resources will be donating 5% of the sales of select training resources to the Red Cross Bushfire Relief Fund in January 2020. This includes all training resources developed or owned by Compliant Learning Resources and Precision Group (Australia), including the Vibrant Courseware, TotalVET Training Resources and RTO Learning Materials catalogues.
No doubt many of our clients and their students have been directly or indirectly impacted by the fires. We hope our donation will help people and communities get back on their feet after this unprecedented disaster. To all those who have been affected by the fires, we hope you and your family are safe and we wish you a speedy recovery.
