Timeline photosRESTRICTED BURNING PERIOD AND BURNING PERMITS 🔥
From Friday 1 April the City will move into the Restricted Burning Period.

Due to drier than normal conditions, Burning Permits are currently not available. Until the dry conditions improve, the following measures will be in place. From 1 April, no permits will be issued however:
✔️ 1 sqm piles of garden refuse can be burnt, one at a time, without a permit between 6pm and 11pm.
💧 Piles must be fully extinguished by midnight (fully extinguished means no heat, smoke or steam and no white ash present where the fire was situated).
🍂 No more than one pile of garden refuse is to be burnt at any one time. There must be one adult in attendance at all times.
❌ No burning of piles including after 6pm or with a permit on days where the Fire Danger Rating is Very High or above.

Once conditions ease, we will notify residents via the City's website and social media channels. Anyone registered for the City's Bushfire Safety Information SMS tool will also be notified by SMS.

Last night at the Brigade’s monthly meeting, ten Members were awarded the National Emergency Medal by the Kalamunda Chief Bushfire Control Officer Mike Ward and District Officer South East Paul Southam. The medal is awarded for service at a nationally significant emergency incident and in this case reflects the recipients’ service at the 2019-2020 Black Summer Bushfires in Queensland, NSW, Victoria and South Australia. Brigade members were part of Western Australian deployments that each spent about a week in Queensland or NSW. WA crews saw plenty of action and gave their exhausted colleagues in the east a chance to rest. DO Southam stressed that while the medal was awarded to individuals, it would be impossible to send anyone without the organisation and the infrastructure provided by the whole Brigade, and it is crucial that when you send people across the country, some people stay behind to protect the home patch. As such this is an award as much for the whole Brigade as it is for the individual members.

The ten medal recipients (nine pictured here with DO Southam and CBFCO Ward) are:

Kylie Howe, Chris Hannah, Reuben Davies, Shane Brodie, Dave Windsor, John Idland, Eric Swaby, Natalie Smailes, Anthony Cable and Duncan Reynolds (not pictured due to quarantine).

The Brigade is extremely proud of its medal recipients and the service they continue to provide to the entire Australian community!
