In early March, I visited in a small school in Western Australia's Wheatbelt region to begin our evaluation of the 'Bushfire Patrol' program. The aim of this trip was to collect some initial baseline data on children's existing knowledge of, and participation in, bushfire risk reduction. What struck me on this trip was how important it is to include rural and remote students in our research. The physical and human geography of the Wheatbelt stands in stark contrast to that of Perth's rural/urban interface and this will likely have implications for the structure and content of Bushfire Patrol.
