Timeline PhotosToday we remember Constable Mark Loohuys 9856 who was killed in an on-duty traffic crash in Glen Forrest in 2000.

Loohuys and his partner were operating as a rapid response team and were responding to a call that a gunman was threatening a patron at the Chidlow Tavern. The unmarked V8 Commodore, in which they were travelling, left the road and smashed into trees off Great Eastern Highway at Glen Forest.

Loohuys, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was killed. His partner survived the crash. The accident occurred 40 minutes before Loohuys was due to end his shift at midnight. He joined the service in 1996 and was only 22 years old when he died.

Thank you for your service, We Will Remember 💙

I was actually a member at the time of the brigade. It hit us all really hard.

So young.

Update on our earlier post,The DFES Page was impacted by this morning’s changes to Facebook. After working with the team at Facebook, DFES page visibility has been restored and we are able to continue providing the WA community with vital emergency information. #Phew

While this is an incredibly valuable platform for us to keep you updated during an emergency, please remember you can always access Alerts and Warnings, Total Fire Bans and Fire Danger Ratings at the following:

After the Fire: the work isn't finished when the rain starts. Today volunteer brigades all over the southwest will be cleaning and checking their fire trucks. Six days straight of work in hot, smoky, dusty conditions and over really rough terrain takes a toll on our appliances. Three of our trucks basically didn't have their engines or pumps turned off for that whole time - they just kept going as old crews were replaced by new ones. So this morning we gave them the once over - there was damage to be fixed, they all needed to be thoroughly cleaned and checked, hoses needed rerolling, stocks needed replenishing, so we're ready to go for the next one. Then we finished it off with a BBQ breakfast 😋. ... See MoreSee Less
