City of Wanneroo
Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA🥶 Winter is coming to southern WA! As the temps drop (it was 0.5 degrees in Wandering this morning), the risk of home fires rises!
We have already had 46 structure fires this year caused by an unattended heat source 😬
Now is the time to look around your home to see how you can prevent some of our most common causes of home fires:
🍳 Unattended cooking
🔌 Rechargeable batteries
🌡️ Home heating

Today saw the completion of a 4 day course for new volunteer fire fighters, 13 of which are joining Quinns Rocks BFB.
All participants showed great skills and ability and we wish them all the best for their new careers. There are more courses to complete and lots more training ahead to make sure they are ready for the next fire season.
Great to also have personnel from other brigades including Wanneroo Central Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, Wanneroo Fire Support Brigade, Yanchep Volunteer Fire and Rescue, Wooroloo BFB and Nilgen Volunteer Bushfire Brigade.
Thanks to the trainers and helpers for giving their time and sharing their skills and experience. ... See MoreSee Less

PRESCRIBED BURN | Residents are advised that the City's Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade will be conducting a prescribed burn at Doogarch Park in Carabooda this Saturday from 8am, weather permitting.
Prescribed burning significantly reduces the amount of ground vegetation (fuel) that acts as a fire hazard during our summer months.
