DFES Acting Chief Superintendent Bushfire Centre of Excellence Mark Bowen AFSM said it would be an action-packed day for all ages and interests.

“We are heading into summer so now is the perfect time to start thinking about how you can prepare your family and property for bushfire,” he said.

“We will have lots of activities to entertain the kids and knowledgeable representatives from across the bushfire sector who can provide information, advice and support.”

There will be fire trucks, state emergency service volunteers and canines, food trucks, a sausage sizzle, children’s activities including face painting, bouncy castle, animal farm and more.

Key sessions will run throughout the day and include scheduled demonstrations of a burnover drill, a firewise garden workshop and Bushfire 101: Q&A session, a presentation from DFES Aviation about WA’s aerial firefighting fleet and an exciting seasonal outlook from the Bureau of Meteorology.
