Tim and Tammy Holmes sheltered under a jetty with their five grandchildren while a firestorm swept across their property in Tasmania, destroying their home and putting their lives in jeopardy. They thought they were prepared. They weren’t.
Their story is not uncommon.
Despite countless major bushfires over the past decade, there are many things we still don’t know.
- Is it best to stay or go?
- How do you decide?
- How can we prepare and prevent?
- What are the financial damages, and the cost of new building regulations?
- Should we be allowed to build in high-risk areas?
This summer alone, eight people have been killed in fire events, and almost 400 homes lost in Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia.
Insight delves into one of the most terrifying feats of nature; one that has scarred the Australian landscape for centuries.
