The main objective of this campaign was to ensure personal and emotional resonance within the community of bushfire awareness and planning. A concise call to action for residents living in bushfire prone areas to start planning today by discussing and planning for bushfires and creating their own Bushfire Safety Plan - either hard copy or online.

The bushfire campaign tag was concise: Bushfire Why Risk it?

Digital Ink created a series of campaign branded designs ensuring we established an emotional connection with the at-risk audience through imagery and text for a varied array of advertising mediums including:

  • Social Media
  • Catch-up TV
  • Radio
  • Metro and Regional Newspaper advertising
  • Dedicated Bushfire Website including an online Bushfire Safety Plan
  • Print material including a comprehensive Bushfire Safety Plan booklet
  • Material delivered to Internal Volunteer and Staff Firefighters
Bushfire Plan

The campaign has been developed referencing research and focus group testing with people living in bushfire prone areas in Tasmania. We set out to ensure there was a focus on removing the complexity of messaging and simplifying the bushfire safety information and resources. The campaign approach was targeted to:

  • Emotionally engage the at-risk audience and increase ownership of bushfire risk.
  • Clearly communicate the simple planning actions required to be bushfire ready.
  • Encourage the community to generate their own Bushfire Plan.

The campaign's success is attributed to the agency's focus on simple emotive messaging and the use of mixed media channels and
appropriate mechanisms to reach the Tasmanian Community. The access to TFS resources, both online and in hard copy format, is a testament to the success of the campaign in bringing attention to bushfire safety in our community.
