HUFF Emergency Preparedness

HUFF aims to ensure the well-being of people within the communities of Blackheath, Medlow Bath and Mt Victoria in the event of bushfires and other extreme weather events.   

HUFF facilitates neighbourhood connections so that people feel better prepared for emergencies.

Blackheath Heads Up For Fire HUFF 02

The aim is for each street to have a volunteer HUFF Facilitator who facilitates informal connections with neighbours and acts as a conduit of information prior to an emergency event. HUFF Facilitators are supported by the HUFF Coordinator who will provide free training and information such as:

  • Creating a bushfire plan
  • Knowing how to access services such as AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents). 
  • Understanding what specific risks might affect their neighbourhood.
