ABOUT THE CONVERSATION HOSTS

Emma Ashton & Rachel Lopes

Emma and Rachel are part of the Otways community of Forrest, Victoria.


Following the 2019/20 summer of devastating bushfires that impacted a vast area of the Australian East Coast, they decided to roll up their sleeves and find out what they needed to know to help their community, and any other high risk bushfire community live safely with fire.
