We share a complex with our good friends and colleagues Kalamunda State Emergency Service. In the early hours of this morning, we believe we interrupted someone attempting to steal a number of items of value from our complex.
Fortunately, we were only away from station for a short period during the night, and we arrived on station just as someone was trying to steal valuable equipment.
If you live in the Walliston area and heard or saw suspicious vehicles last night between midnight and 3am, please give Crime Stoppers WA a call on 1800 333 000 ... See MoreSee Less
We have the car going up Shirley road with trailer around 2:30am on our surveillance. Can only see shape
Makes me so angry, if it was there home or on of a friend that was in danger from a fire or incident that piece of vital equipment could have saved the situation. They would be the first to complain Keep up the good work !!
Will check our cameras

It's every bloody night in Walliston. If it's not the hoon goon squad it's bloody thieving idiots. Kalamunda central has had multiple smash and grabs over the weeks. These creeps know that police response is at least 20-30 minutes away, ever since the local police station was shut down.
September has come (and almost) gone and the start of October means that the Restricted Burning Season is almost upon us. Permits to burn will be required again from the 1st of October to the 30th of November (unless closed off early). You may obtain a Burning Permit by request at the City of Kalamunda Administration Office during these times.
City of Kalamunda residents can still legally burn off a small heap – 1 cubic meter (1m x 1m x 1m), after 6pm and out by 11pm without a permit to burn so long as: • the Fire Danger Rating is not Very High or above, • that a means of extinguishing the fire is available, • there are appropriate firebreaks or hazard reduction around burn area, • all neighbours are notified, and an adult remain in attendance of the fire at all times.
This is powerful stuff. Australian firefighters don't fight wildfires exactly the same way the Americans do, but a lot of this still feels awfully familiar: the weight loss through sweating, the profound exhaustion at the end of an extra-long shift, the days of work at a big fire, the mistakes that people make when they are tired to the bone, the trauma that sometimes comes from attending large incidents where your life is in danger, and houses burn down and people die. Attending a firefighter funeral is a terrible thing. As volunteers we face all this on a regular basis and we keep doing it to protect the communities we live in. ... See MoreSee Less
Glad to hear that our comrades in the east are alive and well after this. The pictures of the truck suggest that the crew protection deluge system only covers the cab rather than the whole truck. In contrast ours in WA cover all important flammable components (tyres, pump etc) on the rear of the vehicle as well. ... See MoreSee Less
