The Heads Up For Fire (HUFF) and Any Emergencies project aims to ensure the wellbeing of people within the communities of Blackheath and Mt Victoria in the event of bushfires and other emergencies.
How does it work?
Neighbourhood Meetings were intially held for every street in Mt Victoria, Blackheath and Medlow Bath where people learned about:
Preparing for emergencies
This is an ongoing project, so you can still learn about HUFF, and how to become a facilitator, by visiting the website http://huff.org.au/ or by calling in at BANC for more information.
What is a HUFF Facilitator?
HUFF Facilitators are people who volunteer their time to get to know their neighbours and share information with them about preparing for an emergency. This includes, how to create a bushfire plan, or how to access services such as AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents). Facilitators receive training and support from HUFF Project staff, at no cost to themselves.
