A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people bounded by Borden-Bremer Road and Devil Creek to the north, Bremer Bay Lookout Tower and Point Henry Road to the east, Black Rocks Road and the coastline to the south and Warramurrup Road to the west in parts of BREMER BAY and POINT HENRY in the SHIRE OF JERRAMUNGUP.

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.

The safest route to leave is via Bremer Bay Borden Road.
