Fire Fatigue

Fire Fatigue
The exhaustion of Australians weary of fleeing bushfire threats.

“The locals are calling it fire fatigue,” The Australian reported:

As scores of residents evacuated their homes in Victoria’s Yarra Valley for the fifth time in three and a half weeks, they admitted to being exhausted by the continuing threat.
The extreme fire danger warnings issued by authorities on Monday forced thousands of people living near the firefronts to head to relief centres, but the forecast conditions and bushfires did not eventuate.
One resident said: “I am just getting so sick of it. … This is the fifth time we have evacuated. I am suffering from fire fatigue.” Another reasoned, “I would rather be inconvenienced than be involved in a tragedy.”
