Anxiety and Worry Linked with Lower Bushfire Preparedness: Study

Fire Note 134: This Fire Note outlines research undertaken within the bushfire-prone communities of Roleystone and Kelmscott in the Perth Hills, about 45 minutes east of Perth, Western Australia. The researchers surveyed householders to assess the role of anxiety and worry in relation to how people process bushfire safety and warning information and the impact of these emotions on how they prepare for threat.
