The jewel in the crown of the South-West
The Shire of Bridgetown – Greenbushes has a very active Local Emergency Management Committee (LEMC) with Councillors and staff from the Shire, staff from the Police Service, Dept of Environment and Conservation, Department of Communities, Department of Health, FESA and local businesses together with volunteers from St John Ambulance, Red Cross, Fire and Rescue Service, SES and Bush Fire Brigades all contributing to making our community safer.
