The Australian Government declared a state of emergency in November 2019. Fires had rapidly spread across all states to become the most catastrophic bushfire season ever experienced in the country’s history. By the end, an area about the size of South Korea, roughly 25.5 million acres had been scorched. Since then, almost nothing has been done to protect the most vulnerable.
Fireproof Australia is a group formed with the sole purpose of future-proofing our country for the fire seasons ahead.
