NSW RFS Assistance to South Australia and Victoria


The NSW RFS has been providing assistance to South Australia and Victoria, during a period of increased fire activity in those states.

Hundreds of NSW RFS volunteers have been deployed to our neighbouring states, providing valuable assistance and relief to local crews.

Commencing on Friday 2 January 2015, the NSW RFS provided specialist fire managers and Incident Management Team personnel, strike teams of volunteer firefighters, liaison officers, trucks and aircraft to both states.

Our thoughts are with those affected by the fires, and we thank those who have answered the call to assist.
