Know thy neighbour!

'Know thy neighbour' was the simple solution one remote Blue Mountains community used before and during a bush fire emergency. .



Imagine you live in a small, remote community. How could you communicate with your neighbours?

Hey Firestormers!

Working together before an emergency arises is a good plan.

  • Fire in the environment,
  • Fire experiences,
  • Prepare,
  • Respond,
  • People,
  • Environment


One year on from the 2019/2020 summer catastrophic bushfires, the Central Coast Council took time to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers, frontline workers and residents who helped to protect the community and give back during one of the most devastating natural disasters the Coast has ever seen. The bush fires of summer 2019/20 will leave a lasting impact on us all. As we hear the unique stories of 15 courageous locals who gave so much during this time, one common theme shines through: the strength, resilience and spirit of the Central Coast community.

All members of the community need to be kept informed during a bush fire emergency.

It's good to have you back
