Neighbour Alert Messaging

Street Contacts

The Pearl Beach Safety Advisory Group (PBSAG) a sub-committee of the Pearl Beach Progress Association has established a communication network called Neighbour Alert to provide information on Bush Fire Alerts and bush fire emergencies. The core of the network are local resident volunteers – Street Contacts supported by PBSAG committee members. The role of the Street Contact is to connect with their neighbours and provide them with information about the Neighbour Alert program, to gather household information for the Neighbour Alert messaging system, to provide RFS material from time to time including the RFS Bush Fire Survival Plan brochure and to be a point of contact for their street residents and owners.  It is emphasised that Street Contacts are in no way expected to ‘save’ their neighbours and are not responsible for anyone else’s wellbeing other than their own.

Further explanation and useful material can be found on the PBPA website :

The Street Contacts are about to commence gathering household information (Nov / Dec 2022) to ensure the messaging database is up to date.  Please assist these street contacts where you can and if you wish, you can also supply your email address so that the PBSAG can keep you informed of other relevant matters throughout the year.
