We were up before dawn attending a fire in Paulls Valley, which kept us busy into the afternoon. Crews have returned to station after attending more fires in Bickley and Orange Grove later today where we returned the favour to City of Gosnells Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade for helping us this morning.

Two recurring themes from today:
* Keep up to date with Total Fire Bans. There are big penalties for lighting up during a Total Fire Ban. Ignorance is not an excuse!
* If you do a burn off, check it regularly. Two fires we attended today were from burn offs from two days ago.

Is this still in place? Can’t see any fire ban now per emergency website or have I searched wrong? Is the city of Kalamunda invoking the Ban?

Not much sleep for volunteer crews last night. A suspicious fire shortly after midnight kept crews from Kalamunda Volunteer Fire & Rescue Service and Kalamunda Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade busy until dawn. Just goes to show - it doesnt matter the colour of the uniform, we are one great team working together! 💪👨🏻‍🚒👩🏼‍🚒🚒🚒

Well done crew Great setup 👍😊

As usual job well done guys

Today the Brigades 2019 Recruit Class completed the very first part of their training, the Introduction to Firefighting course. They still have a way to go to complete probation, but it has now properly started. Congrats to all participants. Shown here are the trainers, recruits and a couple of firefighters from other Brigades, who also completed the course. A great day was had by all and everyone did a great job.
