Bushfire WATCH AND ACT for western part of CARMEL in the CITY OF KALAMUNDA

A bushfire WATCH AND ACT is in place for people in an area bounded by Welshpool Road to the north, Tanner Road to the east and Edward Road to the west in CARMEL in the CITY OF KALAMUNDA.

There is a possible threat to lives and homes as a fire is approaching in the area and conditions are changing.

The fire started near the intersection of MOTTRAM RD and TANNER RD in CARMEL.

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.
