Volunteer Bushfire Brigades

Volunteer Bushfire Brigades are an integral part of delivering emergency service activities within our City and are governed by the Bush Fire Brigades Local Law 2011.  These brigades respond to fires outside the Fire Gazetted District.

Many of the volunteers mention how it has been a great way to meet other community members, develop new skills and knowledge while building resilience within our community.

If you would like to to give something back to your community consider volunteering with one of the ten Volunteer Bushfire Brigades or the State Emergency Serices listed below.

State Emergency Service

When a natural disaster strikes – a storm, cyclone, earthquake, or flood – the WA State Emergency Service (SES) volunteers can be found helping communities and getting them back on their feet.

The SES provides a wide range of services to help communities cope with the effects of natural disasters, from emergency repairs on buildings to restoration of essential services and the ferrying of cargo and passengers across flood waters.

If you would like to volunteer for the SES give the local manager a call.
