New online resource on fire research | Eight years of fire and hazards research in Australia has been collated into a new online resource. The Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) ends this year and will transition to a new national centre for research into fire, flood, storm and other natural hazards. All the final outputs of the CRC, including reports, operational tools, videos, posters and other resources have been sorted and prioritised according to how they can be best used by fire, land and emergency services. They are now accessible on the Driving Change website.
