Australia is one of the most bushfire-prone areas in the world. Initial reports by fire authorities show communities around urban parklands are unaware of the bushfire risk they face. This project was commissioned by the Bushfire CRC to serve as a pilot program for the study of bushfire communication in communities within the urban-parkland interface. Through literature review and interviews with community members and officials in Blackburn, we found current communication campaigns to be ineffective. We generated a series of recommendations to improve the effectiveness of communication around the City of Whitehorse with specific goals for communication in Blackburn.
