Blackheath Bush Fire Watch Group was formed in 2010 with the aim of preparing our village to resist bush fire impact. We have since formed a sub group of approximately 22 residents known as HUFF (Heads Up For Fire) Coordinators. The role of these Coordinators is to:
- disseminate fire and safety information to people in their area;
- distribute bushfire survival plans to local residents and assist them to fill in if necessary;
- be aware of residents in their area who may be more vulnerable in an emergency situation, such as the aged or infirm.
The HUFF Logo was inspired by a local school student’s drawing. It depicts the threat of fire to our towns through the lenses of a pair of binoculars.
