Research into the 2019-2020 bush fires

Summary

The Bushfire & Natural Hazards CRC, commissioned by the NSW RFS, is undertaking research into people’s experiences of the 2019-20 bush fires in NSW.

The Bushfire & Natural Hazards CRC, commissioned by the NSW RFS, is undertaking research into people’s experiences of the 2019-20 bush fires in NSW.

Community members are invited to participate in an interview via telephone or video conferencing (e.g. Zoom, Skype) to discuss their experiences of the recent fires.

They are interested in hearing a range of stories and views from people who were directly and indirectly affected by the fires, including residents and tourists from all parts of NSW.

The results of the study will be used to inform strategies to improve community bush fire safety in NSW. Results will be presented to the NSW RFS, and reports and other publications will be publicly accessible at www.bnhcrc.com.au.

Attached is a copy of the Invitation Letter and Participant Information Sheet, which provides more information about the project.

If you would like to arrange an interview, or have any questions about the research, please email bushfire-research@uow.edu.au or call Josh Whittaker on 0409 007 842.
