Abstract

This report, prepared for the Country Fire Authority (CFA), provides a historical evaluation of the CFA, with an emphasis on analyzing community safety programs. Working with information collected from interviews and literature, the research describes significant fire events since 1983, and the effects of community programs. Overall, the CFA's community safety approach has effectively increased community preparedness and led to a reduction of bushfire damage throughout the state of Victoria.
