Early summer weather predictions are looking warmer than average, with dryer conditions expected in the coming months” information provided by the Bureau of Meteorology, November 2014 to January 2015, Climate and Water Outlook.

The risk of bush fires is ever present in Australia. We are learning to be prepared and yet we need to be involved and participate if we’re to protect our families and our assets. Our local RFS Brigades are in desperate need of volunteers, men and women, all age groups, they need you. If you have spare time available please consider joining the RFS.

The NSW RFS provides training and education opportunities to all members free of charge, giving you the knowledge and skills to work safely. As a Registered Training Organisation, the NSW RFS offers nationally accredited qualifications which mean you can take those qualifications and use them in your day to day life. The NSW RFS also has a number of flexible training options available for members, including manuals and workbooks that allow for the flexible delivery of training as well as some online options.

Once trained, your brigade will arrange the appropriate personal protective clothing and equipment required for your role.

The welfare of our members is important to us, and we have services in place that support our members and their families.
