Cara Rummey was among a recent group of recruits who attended a basic training course for all the local brigades in Wanneroo after looking for an activity to do outside her Year 12 studies.

After completing the introductory course on fire fighting and bushfire fighting, she joined the support brigade, which already includes members from all age groups and background experiences.

Some have mechanical knowledge, others managerial or computer skills, and all a willingness to help, with the brigade also helping at Fire and Emergency Services and Department of Environment and Conservation incidents.

The other volunteer bushfire brigades in the City of Wanneroo are Wanneroo, Quinns Rocks and Two Rocks.
