Community safety and engagement
Fire Note 72: The New Zealand seasonal wildfire assessment is out for summer 2010/2011.
In a first, the Bushfire CRC in association with New Zealand agencies organised a New Zealand Seasonal Wildfire Assessment Workshop, held in Christchurch on Thursday 7 December 2010. This was similar to the Australian seasonal workshops that have been held annually since 2006 and like the Australian workshops, led to the production of this Fire Note – New Zealand Seasonal Wildfire Assessment 2010-11.
Fire Note 71 - Research conducted after the 2009 Victorian Black Saturday bushfires identified several aspects of human behaviour and decision making which jeopardised community members' safety.
