Summary

Artwork featuring a koala in a fire-fighter uniform, one arm raised in a stop posture, wearing a water tank backpack with a pump nozzle in his other hand. On the right are three comics. The top one shows the koala demonstrating use of a stone fire place to a man standing beside a tent; the middle one shows the koala (rake in hand), talking to his neighbour (leaning over the fence) about to set fire to some dry leaves; the bottom one shows the koala indicating the spark arrestor fitted to the exhaust pipe on a tractor. Words on the koala's helmet read: "Prevent bush fires".
