The My Bushfire Plan website and app is coordinated by the Department of Fire and Emergency Services on behalf of the Government of Western Australia.

Information displayed on this site has been sourced from the following agencies:

  • Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES)

Get informed! – Where to find emergency information

The best way to keep informed during an emergency is to seek information from a variety of sources.

You can get information by:

  • Visiting
  • staying in touch with neighbours, family and friends
  • being alert and aware of your surroundings
  • following DFES on Facebook and Twitter
  • listening to ABC local radio, and
  • tuning in to 6PR in the metropolitan area.

If someone you know tells you about a possible emergency, or if you can see or smell something that might be dangerous, that’s your warning. Take immediate action to stay safe. Do not wait to receive a warning or text message.

The alerts and warnings on EmergencyWA are also available by calling the relevant agency, for example the DFES emergency information phone line (13 DFES or 13 3337) or the Bureau of Meteorology’s phone lines

You can also follow emergency agencies’ social media accounts and RSS Feeds.

During an emergency, you may also receive a text or voice message from the emergency services to your telephone. More about Emergency Alert.
