The Bushfire CRC's Fire Update July newsletter is out now, featuring the release of the Bushfire CRC's first ever ebook.

The ebook has been produced for parents on how to talk to children about bushfire preparation and safety. Download it on the Bushfire CRC website for your tablet.

July's Fire Update also includes:

  • a new video of the Awake Smoky and Hot research in action, featuring CFA volunteers. This project is investigating how the exposure to smoke and high temperatures, coupled with little sleep, can impair firefighters’ mental and physical capacities on the fireground.
  • the full proceedings from the 2012 Research Forum released.
