Warnings that save lives

Australian lives are being saved by Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC research, which was recognised with the Cooperative Research Centres Association’s premier award for Excellence in Innovation 2019. The research is shaping warnings and public information campaigns to prepare and protect communities threatened by flood, bushfire, cyclone, storm, heatwave and other natural hazards.
