Backyard burning? Just a reminder!

Published on Thursday, 15 September 2022 at 9:57:52 AM

Are you planning to do a bit of burning off at your property?

A one-minute phone call to the DFES Communications Centre (9395 9209) to let them know about your burn could save our volunteer bushfire brigades countless hours in wasted effort.

At this time of year, DFES receives lots of emergency calls via 000 reporting fires which upon an incident response by brigades turn out to be just a burn-off and a false alarm.

Information provided to DFES is uploaded to the Emergency WA website, a one stop shop for all hazard notifications including road accidents, bushfire, storm and prescribed burns.

See some smoke near you? Visit Emergency WA to see if there is a prescribed burn listed for the day.

And if you are contemplating a burn-off, you might also like to have a quick look at the DFES Burn SMART guide full of useful information to help you understand fire behaviour and planning and conducting your burn.
