Register your burn to avoid a false call out

Published on Thursday, 26 August 2021 at 3:02:03 PM

Over the past few weeks volunteers across our Shire’s Bush Fire Brigades have been called out to attend several reported fires which have turned out to be false. 

Although we are in the Unrestricted Burning Period, please remember to still register your burn with DFES in advance – call (08) 9395 9209.

By registering your burn, you will assist us in preventing any unnecessary call outs to our local fire fighters when members of the public make a triple 0 call.

Our volunteers are a valuable resource and a call out which turns out to be false is a large waste of their time and the Shire’s resources. Continued call outs for false reports may result in action being undertaken.
