Who is Bushfire Volunteers?

Western Australia is privileged to have over 20 000 Volunteer Bush Fire Fighters and Support personnel, who are based at approximately 560 Local Government Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades throughout the State.

These volunteers give their time freely to undertake training and to attend incidents, and our communities are reliant on them to protect life and property against wildfire and other emergencies.

Bushfire Volunteers, formerly known as The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades of Western Australia (Inc), represents all Volunteer Bush Fire Fighters in WA. The
Association is the advocacy agency for the State’s Local Government Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades and was formed by the volunteers as the peak representative body.

The current structure of the Association was incorporated in 1991 as an organisation that champions for the health, welfare, safety and interests of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades, but in history the Association dates back to federation where communities came together to combat fire.
