WANNEROO CENTRAL VOLUNTEER BUSH FIRE BRIGADE

The Wanneroo Central Brigade is part of the City of Wanneroo’s Bush Fire Fighting Service and is one of four (4) brigades within that structure, along with the Quinns Rocks, Wanneroo Fire Support and Two Rocks Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades.

The City of Wanneroo encompasses an area of 685 square kilometres. As a brigade, we provide a fire prevention and suppression service for the municipality. We also render assistance at incidents in areas under the care and control of the Parks and Wildlife Service (PaW), and the gazetted fire districts controlled by the WA Fire and Rescue Service. In addition, our appliances and crews are frequently deployed to incidents out of area, responding to requests for assistance from local governments around Western Australia.

Our bush firefighting area consists of coastal dunes and gently undulating sand country, with numerous outcrops of limestone and caprock. The vegetation of the district includes large areas of pine plantations, swamps, heavy bush areas, coastal heathland and rural properties.

Wanneroo Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade consists of approximately 70 volunteer members who crew a firefighting fleet of 3 Light Tanker 4×4 units and 1 heavy duty 4.4 Rural Tanker 24/7 hours a day, 365 days a year. Since 1962, the Brigade has changed substantially to meet the needs of the community; developing into what is now, an efficient and professional volunteer fire brigade which can adjust, and apply itself to a vast array of emergency incidents. In addition to emergency response, the Brigade specialises in hazard reduction/prescribed burning, community engagement and fire-use supervision (i.e. fireworks).
