Film and photo requests
The NSW RFS and its volunteers receive many requests to participate in film/television/video/photographic projects, both in an on-camera capacity, as an off-camera 'behind-the-scenes' service, or to provide emergency fire protection. Each request is considered on its merit, having regard to the potential benefits and any effect participation could have on NSW RFS response capability. More information can be found in our Filming Policy (Non-operational). To streamline your request, a Questionnaire for Filming Agency is available.
Media Personal Protection Clothing
It is a requirement that media attending NSW RFS bush and grass fire incidents are wearing appropriate Personal Protective Clothing. This is for the safety of yourself and for our own personnel. Please note that the NSW RFS does not sell or provide this equipment. It is a responsibility of media outlets to provide this equipment for staff. Information on how to get measurements for media personal protective equipment and costs for purchasing is available in the below document.
