Australia's Black Summer showed that many households and neighbourhoods are inadequately prepared
for the 'new normal' of faster, fiercer bushfires. This is particularly concerning on the urban fringe, where rapid development is changing landscapes, and households face complex socio-economic challenges. This research aims to understand how Australian fire
