Text Bushfire education: bushfire myth busters

TLF ID M012450

This is a downloadable fact sheet which aims to dispel popular myths about bushfires, with 13 myths grouped into three themes: learning about bushfires, preparing for bushfires and responding to bushfires. Each myth contains a brief description of evidence that discounts the particular misconception about bushfire safety. This resource is part of the Bushfire Education website developed by Education Services Australia on behalf of the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA).
