DSE pamphlet titled 'Campfires; Be Safe Not Sorry', published in April 2007. It outlines general information about dealing with the risk of fires when campfires are not managed properly. It reflects community safety education about the risks of wildfires occurring due to campfires. This 2007 pamphlet was still in public use after the bushfires of February 2009.

Physical Description

DL double sided leaflet, printed in colour with red the predominant background colour.


The bushfires of February 2009 have changed forever the way in which we think of fire risk. This collection of public education material still available after Black Saturday shows how difficult it is for authorities to keep pace with creating appropriate, current and relevant publications. The inclusion of both flood and fire information for the same region also illustrates the challenges faced by local government and other authorities when dealing with increasing extremes of climate.
