YOU ARE WELCOME TO LEAVE A VOICE MAIL MESSAGE OR SEND A TEXT WITH YOUR PREFERRED TIME FOR ME TO RETURN YOUR CALL
I am writing to you because I am a PhD candidate with the University of Western Sydney, and the Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre, on the MAiD project (Managing Animals in Disasters), and I will be conducting research in Port Lincoln and Lower Eyre Peninsula during 2015. This region has been selected by me as the site for my study as it has a variety of animal ownership, has experienced severe bushfires in the last decade and has not been overexposed to surveys and research.
I have a career-long special interest and involvement in practical emergency management as it pertains to animals, their owners and Emergency Services personnel. I would greatly value your involvement with my research, which will look at the interactions between animal owners and Emergency Services during the Response phase of a bushfire. All species of animals, and all types of animal owners will be part of the study, including livestock and primary producers. I want to hear about your experiences and your ideas.
During June 2015, I will be contacting various individuals, community groups, businesses and Emergency Services personnel to invite people to volunteer to take part in the study – and you can do that right now, too – see contact below, or at the top of this page. The first phase of the project will take place in small discussion groups, and some interviews. Later, there will be a survey to follow up on information gathered initially.
For more information, or to register an expression of interest, please call or text me on
