How accessible is your property to a fire truck?

The Brigade maintains a Street Directory which lists, for each property in our assignment area: Residents’ names and contact phone numbers; Information on accessing the property, and any special issues; Details of water resources (tanks & dams) available for firefighting. But this information may be incomplete, outdated or simply wrong! If you’d like a fire truck to visit on a Sunday morning to discuss accessibility to your property then please contact the Captain or one of the Lieutenants. See Contacts >. Fire trucks are taller, wider, and heavier than most vehicles, and have a large turning circle. A visit will establish the facts. You will see any issues the firefighters might have for yourself, and may be able to make improvements. The Brigade will have a more accurate Street Directory, and those who attend will have a better knowledge of the layout of your property. If you wish: We can add special requests to the Street Directory access notes: for instance, if a fire threatens your property we will normally give your house our first priority – but you might prefer us to save your studio, your garage, or your stables. You can check and update our information on water sources on your property. You can alert us to any hazards on your property – dangerous chemicals, guard dogs, mine pits. If you’re certified organic, it’s a good idea for us to know, so we can avoid using foam and wetting agent if possible. We can also provide advice on the bushfire readiness of your property.
