Student project

This thesis was completed in 2017 and investigated the factors influencing household self-evacuation in two Australian bushfires (Perth Hills 2014 and Adelaide Hills 2015). Dr Strahan’s research explored the factors that influenced householders’ decisions to evacuate, identified factors that predict self-evacuation and established the characteristics of self-evacuators. His findings showed that environmental and social cues and warnings and householders’ perceptions of the threat, of hazard adjustments and of other stakeholders, influenced self-evacuation decision making.
