Early Years

Preparing for bushfires

This section introduces the theme of preparing for bushfires in the context of safety messages for children between 4 and 5 years of age, and may be used with students in Prep. It covers what people can do to prepare for a bushfire, and introduces the people who fight fires. These understandings play a key role why it is very important to learn about bushfire safety. These learning experiences extend the ideas introduced in 'Learning about Bushfires'.
