AJEM | Australian Journal of Emergency Management

John Bates portrait

'The recent experience in Victoria with ‘thunderstorm asthma’ reminds me that we also need to be ready for the unexpected and to be vigilant in our observations of what is occurring around us.

This edition of the Journal includes key research in understanding risk and warnings and the importance of communication. As you read the Journal, I encourage you to share the articles with your friends and colleagues and to think about what you can do to improve our national resilience to disasters.'
