Research a key focus for magazine

The Spring 2015 edition of Fire Australia magazine focuses on the essential research that is guiding the fire, emergency service and land management sectors.

The joint publication from the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC, AFAC and the Fire Protection Association of Australia now features a fresh new design with a more contemporary approach.

One of the highlights from this edition, Managed by us mob, looks at how research is helping remote northern communities face natural hazards, as well as the important role local knowledge plays. CRC Researcher Dr Bevlyne Sithole shares her insights from conducting research-on-the-ground in the community of Ngukurr and other remote areas as part of her CRC project.

Planning to make a difference in NSW covers the important research undertaken by New South Wales Rural Fire Service (NSWRFS), through the CRC, following the devastating 2013 Blue Mountains fires. The data captured has been instrumental in helping NSWRFS change their approach to bushfire survival planning. 

This edition also includes two case studies, detailed in Science in motion using research for impact, which consider how research is being used in emergency management.
