Local Rural Fire Brigades

In an Emergency call TRIPLE ZERO, 000.

All local rural fire brigades are part of the NSW Rural Fire Service (http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au), the world's largest fire service. 70,000 volunteer members provide emergency services to over 95 percent of NSW.

The NSW RFS is the lead agency for coordinated bush fire fighting and is also responsible for fires and related emergency incidents within Rural Fire Districts which cover more than 95% of the State. Fires and related emergency incidents include bush and grass fires, structure fires, transport fires and incidents, automatic fire alarms, etc.  

The RFS also supports other agencies in emergency situations such as floods, storms and search and rescue situations.  

A range of operational systems, resources and skills come together to ensure the RFS delivers an efficient, effective response to incidents within its operational responsibilities.

The Rural Fire Service is made up of volunteers from all walks of life - men and women from different cultural backgrounds, age groups and professions.

Rural fire brigades are a reflection of every local community.

Becoming a volunteer firefighter is easier than most people think. Brigades offer training ranging from bush firefighting, village firefighting and first aid to breathing apparatus operation.

We don’t just offer firefighting roles, we have a multitude of areas that require volunteers. Communications, catering, logistics, planning and aviation support are critical – there is a job for nearly everyone in the RFS.

We rely heavily on the support of people from all backgrounds and cultures in our community. The people that make up our Service are as different as the society that we protect.
