The Shire of Denmark is a local government area located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. With a population of just over 6,000, the Shire is home to a variety of landscapes, seascapes, and waterways. It’s also prone to bushfire risk. In 2022, the community faced a major bushfire emergency, and providing swift, accurate information to residents became of the utmost importance. Local officials used Granicus’ all-in-one digital engagement platform as one of its tools to manage communications.
