Cranbrook Shire will be among five local governments to share in $2.8 million to reduce bushfire risk this season.

The WA Government funding will help emergency services perform mitigation activities including building firebreaks, reducing fuel loads and hazard reduction burns.

WA Emergency Services minister Reece Whitby said he encouraged households to help emergency services prevent bushfires.

“We all need to do our bit to help reduce bushfire risks and be as prepared as possible as we head into the high threat season,” he said.
