      796. Hon COLIN de GRUSSA to the minister representing the Minister for Emergency Services:
I refer to the Department of Fire and Emergency Services supply of firefighting appliances to bush fire brigades.
      (1) What is total number of firefighting appliances in operation by volunteer bush fire brigades in each region of Western Australia?
(2) What is the split of light and heavy firefighting appliances in each region of Western Australia?
      (3) What is the range of vehicle brands and models used; and what percentage of each makes up the volunteer firefighting brigade appliance fleet?
Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
The minister advises that, unfortunately, with the level of detail required, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services is unable to provide this information in the time provided, and I ask the member to place this question on notice.
