The FireTech Connect program is an initative of the Peregian Digital Hub, a leading technology incubator based in Noosa on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

After almost burning down in the bushfires of September 2019, Noosa Council's Digital Hub created the Firetech Connect program to accelerate the adoption of promising bushfire resilience technologies by emergency response agencies, enterprises and local governments.

Firetech Connect provides a platform to partners such as emergency services agencies, enterprises and regional councils for trialling innovative bushfire technologies. The platform comprises:

-A pre-qualified global network of over 70 technology solution providers,

-Project funding and RFP framework for conducting pilot trials,

-A Living Laboratory in which solutions can be trialled and assessed.

Applicants willing to apply for the Firetch Connect Network can do it by following this link.
