Pearl Beach Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade

Pearl Beach is surrounded by the Brisbane Waters National Park which is an ever-present threat for bush fires. Although rare, Pearl Beach is not immune from such occurrences. Being aware of this and what precautions to take to prevent and deal with bush fires is essential knowledge for residents and visitors alike.

Pearl Beach Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade is a selfless organisation keeping one and all safe at all times during the year but, more especially, during the summer bush fire season

Upon entering the village via Pearl Beach Drive, you will observe the local BUSH FIRE WARNING sign erected adjacent to the intersection of Pearl Beach Drive and Diamond Road. During the summer months this sign is updated daily or as required in response to any current bush fire threat.

Fire Warning Sign
 

It is imperative that you are aware of what this sign indicates. Refer to the Rural Fires Service Fire Rating web page - www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/fire-danger-ratings

In the event of a bush fire warning alert you may be advised by a recorded message to your landline phone if your phone account address is located in the effected area. Similarly, you may receive an SMS to your mobile phone if your mobile account address is also located in the effect area.

When a Bush Fire Alert is advised, bush fire warning advices will be transmitted on local radio stations. A wise precaution is to have a portable AM/FM radio (with fresh batteries installed) to listen to such bulletins.

ABC Central Coast 92.5 Mhz will broadcast Emergency bulletins, usually preceded by the

Standard Emergency Warning Signal.

Listen for this siren alert sound which may interupt a broadcast.
