Sondra's research analysed social networks to better understand how responses to bushfires are elicited in affected communities. She aimed to explore whether relationships within communities are deliberately developed in response to actual or anticipated impacts of bushfires, and whether those deliberate attempts to develop relationships are thus intended for aid and support.
By establishing how social networks develop on account of the presence or potential of bushfires, the research aimed to understand the level of fire preparedness already being undertaken in communities, with the capacity to provide additional or alternative methods for planning, prevention, and knowledge development.
