Directory and Contact Lists

We gather information from properties in the Brigade’s assignment area as the basis for two documents:

  • A Sedgwick Street Directory, one kept in each of the Brigade’s tankers to help us to respond effectively to fires. It gives information on property ownership, access information, and the availability of water (plus e.g. organic certification, hazardous chemicals location, etc). See also “How accessible is your property to a fire truck?”.

The Street Directory pages are normally displayed at the Brigade’s community events, to help maintain awareness of it, and accuracy of its data.

  • A set of ten Neighbourhood Contact Lists, each distributed to the residents within that neighbourhood, and available only to them (plus a copy is kept by the Brigade Community Safety Coordinator and  the Brigade Secretary in case of emergency). The Brigade does NOT alert residents to fires, but these lists should help neighbours to contact each other if there is a problem on their land, and to organise a local fire warning system if they wish.

This is maintained by the  Community Safety Coordinator, Julian Hall  M: 0447 404 997  E: julian.hall@members.cfa.vic.gov.au

The Brigade fully supports the Sedgwick Connect Website proposal to collect email addresses for community notifications, but as we have undertaken not to share the neighbourhood details with other parties, we maintain separate lists.

You are encouraged to register your email address on Sedgwick Connect by filling in your details at the footer of this page. That way you will receive regular community updates by email as well as urgent news updates related to critical events affecting the community.
