Preparing ourselves for the challenge

Are we prepared for the challenges from a greater number and more extreme bush fires? (courtsey from Australian Geographic)

However, tourism providers and communities appear to be either in denial, have other priorities or simply cannot afford to take steps to protect themselves and their visitors.
