A Putty Hub House communication tree has been utilised during bushfires in the area for over 20 years. In September 2021 it was updated in line with new Council road naming and numbering. Each Hub House services an area on the same road or in close proximity to itself. This enables the coordinator to
- make first contact with the Hub Houses located closest to the emergency
- allow people with no communications to drive to their Hub House for information as most Hub Houses have satellite with wifi mobiles
- find a replacement nearby if neither leader or deputy can fulfil their role
The Hub House Team of Leaders and Deputies consists of over 40 people willing to help and keep their neighbours informed during an emergency event.
A comprehensive Hub House Emergency Plan for bushfires and floods has been shared with emergency services for comment and with the Local Area Management Committee
