If you see smoke that is not from either of these fires or you wish to report a fire call 000 (triple zero) immediately.

Residents of Snowy Monaro, were you in an area that was threatened by a bushfire in the last 4 years? If you are over 18, we want to hear from you!
RMIT and Natural Hazards Research Australia are conducting a study to improve how emergency information is communicated to the public using maps. We will be asking about what information you received and what you did in response to the 2019-2020 bushfires, what role (if any) maps played in your response, and your thoughts about two newly developed maps that will be shown to you during the interview.
Please register online, email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (03) 9925 3267 to express your interest in participating in the study. Your experiences are important to us and will help to improve the safety of bushfire prone areas across Australia.
