CFU RECEIVES RSL GRANTS
The Scotland Island CFU have been fortunate enough to receive grants
from Pittwater RSL Club and also Avalon Beach RSL Club to fund the
additional pumps we need to service the island. This is fantastic
news, not only for us, but for all island residents. Penny Wise
and Ian White accepted the cheques on behalf of the Community Fire Unit
at a function at Pittwater RSL Club on 21 August. We’re overwhelmed by
the generosity of both clubs and owe them huge thanks.
Here is an update on the subject of identifying our properties should
we find ourselves in the unfortunate circumstance of requiring the
assistance of emergency services. In our 20 odd years here it has
happened to us twice - once being to a child reacting to a fish venom
and needing water police plus ambulance so I have first-hand experience
of the importance of this issue.
Many thanks to everyone who submitted suggestions - it certainly
highlighted the different needs according to location and also the fact
that the physical location of some properties virtually defies
On Scotland Island, where we all have a house number and street
address, many of us can display the number at the street side entrance
to our property and, if we live on the water front, on the pylons of
But firstly forget about lot numbers, they'll confuse anyone, and
secondly be sure that the number is displayed in the street to which
your address belongs which is not necessarily the one your primary
access may be from.
For example the several properties which front onto Florence Terrace
but have an address of Thompson St. Displaying a Thompson Street number
on Florence Terrace is not going to help. In deciding where to display
your number take into consideration that it may be being looked for
from a vehicle like the fire truck so as high as practically possible
and as easy to read as possible. There are already some recent
house numbers appearing around the island- and you know what? - Even if
only a few people take up the suggestion it will help.
