Welcome to the AVBFB website.
Western Australia is privileged to have approximately 26,000 volunteer Bush Fire Fighters who are based at over 560 Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades throughout the state.
These men and women give their time freely to undertake training and to attend incidents with communities being reliant on them to protect life and property against many hazards inlcuding bushfire.
The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades of WA Incorporated (or AVBFB), is the advocacy agency for the State’s Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades and their volunteers. It is also recognised as the ‘prescribed association’ by the Government of Western Australia.
