This week has been a prime example that you don’t need to live in the middle of the bush to be in a high fire risk area. Recent fires in bush reserves, parks and scrub land areas around High Wycombe, Aubin Grove, Baldivis and Spearwood to mention only a few, shows how quickly a scrub or grass fire can start and spread causing a extremely dangerous situation to lives and homes. We have plenty of these reserves, parks and bush land within our own patch in the City of Wanneroo

So with more warmer weather again next week, if you live within one of these higher risk areas and you don’t already have a bushfire plan, make one ‼️

Know your area and know your risk🔥🔥

Stay safe everyone and be careful 🙏🏻

Air support is critical at every incident and it’s important for bystanders and the general public to stay well clear when they need to re fill. Please help them to help you and our fellow WA community by keeping well away ! 🚒🚁🚨❗️Please stay back when our aircraft are refilling at nearby water sources.

Our Aerial Fleet are working hard at the bushfire in Aubin Grove which remains at an Emergency Warning.

If you get too close attempting to take photos and videos while they are refilling, they will need to be redirected to another water source which can delay bushfire response.

ℹ️ See the latest warning at www.emergency.wa.gov.au
