The NSW RFS has fire management responsibilities for over 95 percent of the landmass of the State and therefore the Service is spread across the length and breadth of NSW. A total of 47 districts are grouped into four regions.
In each District NSW RFS staff members assist volunteers and brigades to prepare for and respond to operational incidents.
A Fire Control Centre forms the administrative and operational base of the rural fire district or zone.
The coordination and management of local brigade responses to fire and other incidents – including natural disasters, motor vehicle accidents and other civil emergencies – is undertaken through the Fire Control Centre.
