Protection Plan work continues at the Community Hall today (Tuesday 17) with workers busy completing the installation of window shutters. These special shutters, now being fitted to the windows on the western side, will reduce radiant heat exposure into the hall helping to make it a safer place.

In the event that it is necessary for any residents to take refuge in the Hall as a place of last resort, these shutters will be able to be wound down from inside the Hall.

Dear Community Members

Recently I met with representatives from the various Cove community groups to review and discuss the issues that were first raised with me during the beginning of my work in the community.

Bushfires in Australia increased by 40% from 2008 to 2013. This worrying statistic was highlighted in the intro to last week's SBS Insight program: Line of Fire. And this article on The Conversation tells us that: "future bushfires will be worse - we need to adapt now". This is very sobering viewing and reading.

... I would like to maintain a positive focus on what has been achieved both in and by the community so far. To date we have been successful in putting in an APZ around the hall and listing it as a Neighbourhood Safer Place. Yes the hall is now officially part of the Neighbourhood safer place program and is listed on the NSW Rural Fire Service website. ...
