It may be Christmas but our crews were still up bright and early assisting Two Rocks Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade with a scrub fire on Pipidinny Rd this morning.
Not quite the kind of present we thought we would wake up to but rest assured we are ready to turn out to any job over the festive season.

Don’t forget to keep an eye on Emergency WA for any total fire ban advice over the holiday period.

Stay safe and enjoy Christmas Day!πŸŽ„πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸš’πŸš’

Last night we had the opportunity to participate in a snake safety and reptile education session with the very knowledgeable Tessa from Tessa’s Reptile Services.

We come across a variety of wildlife during bushfires and learnt some valuable information on:
β€’ Safely navigating when coming across a snake
β€’ Snake behaviour and debunking some common misconceptions
β€’ Identifying local snake and reptile species
β€’ How to pick up bobtails when spotted close to or on the fire ground
β€’ First aid tips for snake bites

A massive thank you to the organisers of this session which all 4 City of Wanneroo brigades got to participate in and a huge thank you to Tessa for all the knowledge and stories you shared.

If you ever come across a snake or reptile in your yard or house, please stay calm and call Tessa to come and helpοΏΌ get your scaly visitor out safely.

It’s wonderful that you care for all creatures after the horrific loss of so many 3 years ago 😍 stay safe all xxx

Love our native wildlife. Thank you for keeping them safe while you conduct your works ☺️.

That would have been awesome!

Tessa is just absolutely amazing! We had her come for our sons birthday party and all the kids learnt so much, plenty of photos and much more confident around snake safety.

Great work Tessa’s Reptile Services tessa

Been a few busy days for the Brigade and the City of Wanneroo Fire Services with large incidents in Carabooda, Mariginiup and now 7 members are deploying to the Cervantes / Jurien Bay fires πŸ”₯ to assist our fellow brigades and firefighters in need. Please stay safe everyone, Thankyou and remember your LACES!

Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA
Quinns Rocks Bush Fire Brigade
Wanneroo Central Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade
Wanneroo Fire Support Brigade
Two Rocks Volunteer Bush Fire BrigadePLEASE NOTE: This warning has been updated. For the latest information please visit www.emergency.wa.gov.au

πŸ”₯ A bushfire EMERGENCY WARNING is current for people in area bounded by Jurien Road to the north, Munbinea Road to the east, south to Lobster Shack Cervantes and the coastline to the west, including the townsite of JURIEN BAY in CERVANTES, JURIEN BAY and NAMBUNG in the SHIRE OF DANDARAGAN..πŸ”₯

Update time: 12:27 AM, 14 December 2022.

⚠ If you reside in the Jurien Bay townsite, you can evacuate to the north on Bashford Street or east on Jurien Road.

⚠ The Jurien Bay Sport & Recreation Centre remains open.

⚠ People south of the Cervantes Road and Indian Ocean Drive intersection can leave in a southerly direction towards Lancelin on Indian Ocean Drive

⚠ You are in danger and need to act immediately to survive. There is a threat to lives and homes.

❗ WHAT TO DO: ❗

- If the way is clear, leave now for a safer place.
- Do not wait and see, leaving at the last minute is deadly.
- Close all doors and windows and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.
- If you cannot leave, you need to get ready to shelter in your home.
- Go to a room in your home away from the fire front and make sure you can easily escape.
- Choose a room with two exits and water such as a kitchen or laundry.
- If you are not at home, it’s too dangerous to return.

---AND---

πŸ”₯ A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is current for people in an area bounded by Gairdner Road across to the coastline to the north, Cockleshell Gully Road to the east, Jurien Road to the south and the coastline to the west in JURIEN BAY in the SHIRE OF DANDARAGAN.. πŸ”₯
