Bush Fire Brigades
Like most country emergency services, the Shire of Denmark Bush Fire Brigades relies on volunteers to dedicate their time to protect their community from bush fires.
The Shire has 14 Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades with 23 firefighting appliances and we are always looking out for residents wanting to help their community by joining this important community service.
