The Wanneroo Central Volunteer Bushfire Brigade and the support brigade will hold a barbecue fund-raiser on August 29.
Treasurer Shane Sheely said they would sell hot dogs for $2.50 and drinks for $1.50 outside Bunnings from 7am to 4pm.
�Trucks and volunteers will be there from 9am to 2pm for children to look at and have photos taken,� he said.
�Members of the public between these times can also find out about bushfire information or how to become a member.
�The funds raised will go towards the purchase of a thermal imaging camera, which is valued between $5000 and $8000, for our brigades.
�This camera will enable firefighters to make sure that the fire is out completely.�
Mr Sheely said funds raised at last year�s barbecue bought a defibrillator for the brigade�s light tanker, and five of their vehicles now had defibrillators.
�Last December one of the defibrillators was put on standby as a firefighter waited for an ambulance due to heart problems,� he said. �He was later taken to hospital where a defibrillator was used to put his heart back into normal rhythm.
�That firefighter is still alive.�
