Australian researcher Dr. Briony Towers shared a story with us this week about 9-year-old Darcy and his mom Fiona's story of survival during a bushfire.  Dr. Towers had recently returned from Tasmania where she interviewed people in fire affected areas, including Darcy and his family. 

Read their story at the Save the Children - Australia site. The details highlight the importance of including children in the planning process so they know their role during evacuation and to take special care with them during the post-fire recovery phase.
