Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade Assisted Control Burns

The Shire of Denmark Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades are able to assist with controlled burning to reduce fuel levels on your property. This service is provided for an 'at cost' fee which is returned directly to the Brigade. By using your local bushfire brigade to conduct a controlled burn, you can ensure the burn is carried out by experienced firefighters, in a safe manner, using modern fire fighting equipment.
