The type of hydrants we have mean we would not have to resort to such action. But its worth remembering that the eastern most hydrant we have is the Pickering Brook Primary School. If access to this hydrant is blocked due to parked cars, it adds precious time for us to fill our tankers in the event of a fire

There is actually one additional hydrant east of the primary school, but we avoid it wherever possible due to the damage it will cause to the crossover and safety with traffic

And well done to the Kalamunda Bush Fire Brigade for keeping this award going. A fantastic Brigade and we appreciate the time and effort the members volunteer to protect not just Kalamunda but assisting the surrounding shires at times of need. Keep up the great work.

I remember that day only too well. Very sad.😥😥😥

Thank you for all your sacrifices we are so grateful

😢

Jo Mallis Paul Markovic has it really been 19 years! Still can't listen to Land Down under without remembering Mark!! Taken way too soon. Never Forgotten

Time flies Pennie Stockdale Bazen. I have such fond memories which are as vivid as he was just here yesterday. He's sadly missed.

It was a very sad day. Worked along side him in the brigade. Taken way too soon, RIP.
