Fire Ready Meeting & BBQ Thursday 10th September 2015

 For all Buchan & District Residents

6.00pm at the Recreation Pavilion

Community BBQ will be happening @ 6.00pm then meeting to follow with Emergency Services both Local and Regional.

The East Gippsland Resilience Project, last year, saw a group of community minded people gather together with Emergency Services and the EG Shire to support the publication and distribution of the Buchan District LIMP Plan. (Local Incident Management Plan) for our district.  Also an A4 Quick reference sheet to be both utilised in times of fires or floods.

Our group has made the decision to strike early before the summer season is upon us and is organising an evening to come together to provide a forum for community and our emergency services both local and regional.

Some suggestions for discussion.

Is your property Fire Ready Prepared? If not what can be done to improve your patch.

Updating Phone Trees with new residents and changes of phone numbers.

Are all the Group Leaders still available if needed for the Phone Trees?

Maps of our district.  Maps of burn offs already achieved.

What other areas need to be cleaned up around our district?

Do people need a helping hand to prepare their properties?

Do you need any assistance in working out your Fire Plan for yourself and your property?

Did everyone receive the updated LIMP Plan at the end of last year?

We would love to see as many people at this gathering as possible, and putting this information out early so you can place it in your diary.

Please RSVP Suzanne Davies by 27th August for catering purposes.
