The peak body for Western Australia’s 20,000+ registered Western Australian Bush Fire Service volunteers has today declared that the first Monday in May each year will mark the beginning of its “Bushfire Volunteers Recruitment Week“, starting 4 May 2020.

The annual Bushfire Volunteers Recruitment Week will focus media and public attention on the ever-present need for WA’s 500+ Bush Fire Brigades to attract new members in order to provide the invaluable services they give to protect and prepare communities all over the state.

As well as delivering a broad statewide public awareness campaign, Bushfire Volunteers will also develop support materials and facilitate small grants to help Brigades run and manage their own, fit-for-purpose local events and campaigns.
