This is the website of the Yallingup Rural Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade, headquartered 6.2k south of the Yallingup Post Office on Caves Road. The brigade covers an area of around 106 sq. kilometres. Its neighbours include the Yallingup Coastal, Dunsborough and Wilyabrup brigades. If you are interested in volunteering as a fire fighter please go to the Join Us page in the menu above. If you are not keen on fighting fires but want to help, we are also looking for auxiliary volunteers. See the Join Us page for that too. Without volunteers there is no brigade.
The brigade is a not-for-profit organisation and any contributions would be much appreciated. The brigade is authorized to accept donations which are tax deductible and can be made under the Donate page in the menu.
If you have any general questions please get in touch via “Contact Us“.
