Bushfires and Health in a Changing Environment: Fact sheet

Bushfires and Health in a Changing Environment: Fact sheet

Bushfires have always been a part of the Australian ecology, but now that ecology is changing.

Extreme fire weather has increased in Australia over the last 30 years. Our fire-prone continent is at particular risk from the impacts of climate change, and we are experiencing more extreme heat events, an increase in severe fire danger days and a longer fire season (Hughes & Fenwick 2015; CSIRO 2016).

Doctors for the Environment Australia have developed this fact sheet detailing how bushfires harm health, and what can be done.
