Abstract

Bushfires and Natural Hazards are features of the Australian climate and landscape and will continue to pose a threat (Council of Australian Governments (COAG), 2011). These hazards can have profound personal, social, economic and environmental impacts. The impacts of these disasters demand efforts in planning, preparation, response and recovery to improve community resilience. Disaster management is a collective responsibility of all levels of government, society and businesses and of individuals. For disaster resilience, emergency management planning should consider risk and risk treatments across built, economic, social and environmental assets (COAG, 2011). Exposure ‘what is at risk’ information is fundamental for assessing risk from natural hazards, and therefore, nationally consistent information is required for evidence-based prioritising and targeting interventions. To address this, consistent methodologies and frameworks are required to enable information sharing and accurate interpretation.
