WA Po­lice work closely with the Depart­ment of Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices (DFES) and Depart­ment of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW), who both have con­sid­er­able work­loads dur­ing sum­mer. Both agen­cies are cur­rently fo­cussed on pre­scribed burns, which may re­duce the visibility of the road and which may at­tract re­duced speed zones. Po­lice will en­force such speeds to en­sure per­son­nel en­gaged in the burns re­main safe. As al­ways, please drive to the con­di­tions. Many of WA's pre­scribed burns are man­aged by DPAW and gen­er­ally take place from March through to Novem­ber each year in both ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas.
