About the Muster
Join our muster event to support the Central Coast community and help reduce the risk of future bushfires, before summer begins.
What to expect
Kincumba Mountain Reserve covers an area of approximately 600 hectares of bushland adjacent to a number of urban areas.
The reserve has significance to local First Nations People. The communications tower, located on the highest point of the reserve, is essential for communications during disasters in the Central Coast area.
During this muster, you will help to manage the vegetation, clear debris and fuel loads along the fire trails and around the reserve to reduce the fire risk.
Bring your own lunch, snacks and water for the day.
We look forward to seeing you at the preparedness activity.
