The Brigade is recruiting – come join the Kalamunda Volunteer Bushfire Brigade family!
We are holding our annual recruiting drive and are looking for motivated volunteers to join the Brigade. This year we are looking to recruit a maximum of 15 new volunteers - to be eligible you need to be over 17 years of age, be reasonably fit and healthy (firefighting is hard, dirty work), and must live within the borders of the City of Kalamunda. We are also looking for support volunteers, people who don’t fight fires but who work in the background to support frontline firefighting operations. You also need to be the kind of person who is happy to jump out of bed at 3am in the morning because there is a bin on fire somewhere.
Joining the Brigade is a big commitment, so we only want people who have the time and support of their family to be a firefighter. It isn’t just “turn up and go fight fires” – there is a significant training component and it will be at least six months before we even let you near a fire. Ideally we want people who will commit to the Brigade for at least a few years (the more the better), and whose family and work commitments mean they will be available to turn out to fires, as well as attend regular training and hazard reduction operations.
Still interested? To register your interest please visit our website and click the “Join Us” tab. Fill out the form and your name will be added to the list of potential recruits and someone from the Brigade will be in contact with you soon.

Volunteering is a Gift that you want to give but you want to care or help those in need and like the Volunteer Firies, they want others to join and if you are looking for something special to do then you can be that special person...............
Yesterday was the third anniversary of the fire storm that impacted the town of Yarloop. We were honoured to re-join our volunteer colleagues from the south west to pay our respects to those who lost their lives in the fire, and to the locals who are still trying to recover today. We also had a wonderful opportunity to do a lap of the town together and meet some of the locals. Thank you Yarloop BFB for allowing us to be apart of this day.

Two Brigade appliances, our 3.4 and 2.4 heavy vehicles spent most of today at this fire in Karragullen. Crews were involved in directly fighting the fire, protecting exposures (nearby buildings under threat from spread of the fire) and carrying water (which was in short supply) from nearby Roleystone. A total of 16 Brigade volunteers attended the fire in two shfts. ... See MoreSee Less
