Would you be interested in helping to grow the Network by starting up a Cluster in your neighbourhood? All assistance much appreciated!

The initial step is to decide on the number of households for your cluster. Generally this would be a logical grouping either by a street or 2; a block of houses; a subdivision. It can be as small as 6-8 households or as big as you wish. Having a buddy to share the letterboxing is also handy. Note that when letterboxing by foot it may take around 40 minutes to letterbox 100 households.  

The flyers for letterboxing are prepared by the Network Coordinator – Hazen (that’s me). They will be photocopied and delivered to you to distribute. The flyers will also contain bushfire related information (provided by CFA) and an invitation to residents to attend an information session re risk to the neighbourhood and fundamentals for preparing their property and household both physically and mentally.

Information sessions can be arranged either for individual clusters or a group of clusters. Again Hazen can organise and present these information sessions with input from cluster contacts. Your input can be as much as your time and resources allow. We work on flexibility and cooperation being the best way to work together to deliver the Network outcomes.
