Bushfire Preparedness

17 September 2019 1:00 PM

The City of Kalamunda is uniquely placed in the Darling Ranges, with the region being renowned for its beautiful Jarrah and Marri forests, walking trails and native flora and fauna. The natural beauty of the region however, significantly increases the area’s risk to bushfire.

As such, The City of Kalamunda aim to prepare and protect its community through the implementation of a proactive community engagement strategy, to educate and empower community members to confidently prepare, safely respond and improve recovery, if impacted by bushfire.

Bushfires have the capacity to strike without warning and provided with the right environmental conditions, can quickly exceed firefighting resources, devastating community, properties, and infrastructure, while posing great risk to the loss of human life.

It is for this reason, that it is imperative that both the wider community and individual households are supported in engaged in bushfire preparedness, awareness and survival planning. This is crucial for the City of Kalamunda to protect life, livelihood, property and community.
