Our fire service plays a vital role to our lifestyle in WA, especially when it comes to bushfires and managing other disasters throughout our state.

DFES's Education and Heritage Centre have recently put a book together looking at the past 120 years of the WA Fire Service with a focus on the Perth Fire Station.

The station housed hundreds of Perth firemen and staff starting in January 1901, and DFES historian Ron Harley joined us to talk about it's impact and it's lasting legacy to the WA Fire Service.
