Summary "This book is an authoritative treatment of the key social, political and human issues related to Australia's ongoing bushfire scenario, written by managers, educators and practitioners. It covers community safety and bushfires in Australia, featuring current research on a number of aspects of bushfire education and community preparedness. The research behind this book is user-driven, conducted in partnership with fire and land management agencies, and aims to tackle the 'big questions' concerning community safety and bushfires in Australia. This book presents insights for practitioners and policy makers that can be applied directly to agency community safety and education programs. "--Provided by publisher
