Bushfire Arson Attached are two research briefing notes from the Bushfire CRC.
- Bushfire Arson – what do we know now? This Fire Note summarises the main outputs of the bushfire arson project. Researchers at the Australian Institute of Criminology have completed a range of studies including a review of patterns of bushfire arson and a review of arson prevention practices.
- Lessons from the research. Last year, the pre-conference seminar “Fire, Fuels and Weather” at the annual Bushfire CRC and AFAC conference was filmed and the presenters were interviewed on their subject matter. Produced with the assistance of the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, the DVDs are now available as a resource for fire managers. In a separate project, Bushfire CRC research on fires in the forests of Western Australia and its broader implications has been summarised in a DVD “Fire in the Landscape”. More details on how to obtain these DVDs is in the attached Fire Update and at www.bushfirecrc.com/publications/guides.html
