Even before Grenfell Tower, the job was never easy, plunging firefighters into life-and-death situations that can be hard to forget. And with unprecedented cuts to services, and ever-expanding responsibilities, morale is dangerously low
We are proud to announce four new Life Members of the Kalamunda Volunteer Bushfire Brigade. Life membership is the highest long term honour the Brigade can award to individual members - only about 1% of people who join the Brigade ever achieve this honour. Vince Longo, Steve Lake, Dave Stewart and Simon Bell all joined the Brigade in 2002, and have been stalwart members ever since. Each of them have served in their own way - all have held management positions, all have attended over 200 emergency incidents with the Brigade, and all have provided excellent service to the community, working tirelessly to protect us all from the threat of fire. We salute all four of them. ... See MoreSee Less

Great to get a visit from 1st Kalamunda Scouts last night. Hope you all had a great time!!Kalamunda SES and BFB hosted some special and maybe one day future recruits from the 1st Kalamunda Scout Group at our Local Head Quarters this week. In the right corner it was SES ORANGE with knots and ropes with a creative relay of z pulley system to move our team trailer’s and hang sandbags, followed by a demonstration of Scout Leader v’s rope. AND in the left corner it was BFB YELLOW with smoke and water which developed a rapid weather cold front exactly at our location. Trust our local community Scouts learnt some skills and awareness of what we do and enjoyed their visit. ... See MoreSee Less
