FIRE and Emergency Services Commissioner Darren Klemm has warned that while attention to bushfire plans often spiked after major fires there was still too much complacency.
Mr Klemm is again appealing to the public to spend 15 minutes making a bushfire plan as their best defence against unpredictable bushfires.
“Only 1.5 per cent of households have a recorded bushfire plan compared to 93 per cent of the State that is bushfire prone,” he said.
“Firefighters have responded to 2706 bushfires since October, 38 per cent more than at this time last year, and with conditions not showing any signs of easing we want to see everyone prepared for a potential emergency in their area.
“More than 30 bushfires have hit emergency warning level since October and many of those were in the Perth metropolitan area. Use the My Bushfire Plan app or website to make those lifesaving decisions now.”
