Emergency Management Bulletin - Total fire bans & important information for fire season

Emergency WA Website Launch
A new multi-hazard Emergency WA website has recently been launched by the WA State government to allow better public access to emergency information and community safety warnings.

The new easy-to-use site will deliver a live feed of emergency incidents reported to the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES).

It will also include critical warnings about fires, floods, storms, earthquakes, cyclones and hazardous material incidents. This includes warnings and prescribed burns information from DFES, local governments and the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The new map-based home page with search and filter options will make it easier to find warnings relevant to your location on mobile phones and other digital devices.

Total Fire Bans
A Total Fire Ban (TFB) is declared because of extreme weather conditions or when widespread fires are seriously stretching firefighting resources. A TFB is declared by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) following consultation with local governments.

When a TFB is declared it prohibits the lighting of any fires in the open air and any other activities that may start a fire.

The ban includes all open air fires for the purpose of cooking or camping. It also includes incinerators, welding, grinding, soldering or gas cutting.

When declared, Total Fire Bans are in place for the whole day, from midnight to midnight. They may be revoked during the day if the forecast weather does not eventuate or if weather conditions ease.

WARNING: You could be fined up to $25,000 and/or jailed for 12 months, if you breach a Total Fire Ban. Exemptions may be allowed for some industries and activities with conditions applied.

For more information download the Total Fire Bans Fact Sheet or check the DFES website.

If you have any queries, please contact Emergency Management at Curtin or call the HSEM Department on (08) 9266 4900.
