While no events are planned for the next month or so, bushfire and other events over the summer period have led to activations of WICEN in past years. The BOM is predicting a high likelihood of warmer and drier weather for NSW, especially in proximity to the coast.

A training day is proposed for Sunday, February 19.

On Sunday, February 26th, WICEN will be represented at the CCARC Field Day, an event to which the adage that "many hands make light work" applies.
