The Brigade deployed a number of resources to this fire and it should be noted that it wasn't the rain that stopped it, but the fact that the fire ran into low fuel due to a hazard reduction burn carried out in 2015.
Parks and Wildlife, Western Australia This vision was filmed on the fire ground as Parks and Wildlife Service, Volunteer Bushfire Brigades and Department of Fire and Emergency Services WA crews put in a massive effort to suppress the Sawyers Valley bushfire. THANK YOU to everyone who helped!
Thankyou for all your tireless work in that 24 hour period but also being so constructive in getting these prescribed burns done. It made all the difference to us not having to evacuate in the end. So a huge thankyou!! 😘
Well done Guys you guys are worth your weight Gold. Thanks for servicing our community and for all you do
Thanks to everyone who helped us spread a bit of Christmas cheer this afternoon! We all had a great time. We’re sorry that we didn’t get to see everyone this time and we will be working on the tracking system for next year.
From the Kalamunda Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade and Kalamunda State Emergency Service we hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy new year! ... See MoreSee Less
Here is our planned route for Sunday 🙂. We'll be starting in Walliston and heading South then back up into Kalamunda (Providing we don't have any fire calls) hope to see you out there! ... See MoreSee Less
Any time a firefighter dies in the line of duty it is tragic, but this one is particularly awful given that Cory Iverson left a pregnant wife and two year old daughter behind. Our thoughts are with our fallen comrade. ... See MoreSee Less
