Statement Of Significance:
Many people found their safety threatened when travelling in fire prone areas on Black Saturday and indeed some lives were lost in their cars. The need for marketing campaigns to educate the public about the do's and dont's regarding car travel during high fire danger days is high. This pamphlet is a small part in a larger information strategy to educate the community during bushfires.
