Bushfire

CSIRO's research is used to respond to bushfires in many ways, from weather warnings to fire-fighter training to predicting fire behaviour.

  • Bushfire research

    CSIRO bushfire research is improving the understanding of fire, and improving technologies and strategies to save lives and limit damage.

  • Building infrastructure and bushfire

    CSIRO has a strong history in observing and recording the way in which bushfires impact on infrastructure.

  • Fire danger meters

    We have developed several meters to help assess the danger of bushfire conditions in different areas, as well as a house survival meter.
