    Theo is missing 3 spades and 2 shovels, please let me know where they are…


    I was thinking we need some kind of emergency contact group that is only activated when help is needed (like this fire) the request went to Dee asking for spades and people to move hoses and fresh water (to drink) and she contacted a few locals and I did too and lots of people who would have like to have contributed were left out. We need to have a better comms plan in place…, I think fire season is gonna be hectic this year.

      I was thinking FoZR, SRA and others,
      I was thinking a fire/emergency group on Whatsapp (and/or other platform) that isn’t like the Egrets way security group one – i.e.. constantly on.
      I was thinking of a dormant group that is activated by one or 2 central people and stays active for that short while and then goes silent again.
      Let me know if you are interested in taking part or any ideas you have about this.
