Project Description

When there’s a bushfire coming, you and your family's survival will depend on how prepared you are, and the decisions you make.
People who prepare their homes for bushfire season and practice their survival plans understand what works and are most likely to survive.
Most people who die in bushfires die leaving their homes at the last moment.
Prior Prevention Prevents Panic. Ready, aim, fire!

Data Story

Starts with the data in the CFS 5 Minute Plan which populates the app.

Gamification prompts are driven by conditions and timing primarily, along with the spatial data.

Emergency triggers and warnings of increased risk would be driven by EPA air quality data, Geoscience Australia Sentinel satellite IR data and BOM forecasting in addition to existing CFS notifications. Sentiment analysis of social media and news feeds could be used to provide less prominent informational messages.

In an emergency, the process to determine the optimal place to evacuate will include risk data that are a composite of known fire danger (BOM dataset), weather (BOM dataset), topography (OpenStreeMaps dataset), road works (DPTI dataset). Thus, a shorter riskier route would be deprioritized versus a longer safer route.

Working Together

How can open government data to improve responsers' situational understanding and ability to plan their response, and share their information between agencies? How can sharing information between agencies be improved by different information presentation, allowing more informed decisions during domestic emergencies or national security events?
