Ken Thompson

Former Deputy Commissioner, Fire and Rescue NSW NSW

Ken Thompson is the former Deputy Commissioner of Fire and Rescue NSW, a member of Emergency Leaders for Climate Action and an expert on risk and emergency management and strategic planning.

As a firefighter for 38 years, Ken witnessed the changes to the frequency, magnitude and intensity of extreme weather nationally and internationally. Witnessing the increase in extreme weather and the impact it has on fire and emergency services and native flora and fauna is what inspires Ken to call on Federal Governments for immediate climate action.

Ken is the CEO of Thompson Consulting, where he provides strategic, operational and tactical advice on emergency and disaster management plans for the public and private sector.
