Abstract

By using the experience of the community members to understand the experience of living in a bushfire affected community we can extract what factors that are important to a competent, resilient community. This current study used qualitative methods to determine that five factors (sense of community, social support and social networks, self efficacy, coping and community competence) are important aspects of the communities experience in mediating bushfire disasters.
