Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for parts of BREMER BAY in the SHIRE OF JERRAMUNGUP

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people bounded by Borden-Bremer Road to the north, a line between Don Ende Drive and the coast to the east, a line between the Devils Creek S Road intersection to the coast to the west and the coastline to the south in parts of BREMER BAY in the SHIRE OF JERRAMUNGUP.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is near property and unpredictable weather conditions are expected.

The fire started near the intersection of DILLON BAY RD and MINARUP RD in BREMER BAY.

WHAT TO DO

If you are not prepared or you plan to leave, leave now if the way is clear.

If you are well prepared and plan to actively defend your home, make final preparations now.

If you plan to stay and actively defend, do not rely on mains water pressure as it may be affected. You need to have access to an independent water supply, and start patrolling your property to put out spot fires.

Keep doors and windows closed and turn off evaporative air conditioners, but keep water running through the system if possible.

If you are not at home, do not try to return as conditions in the area could be very dangerous.
