NSW Bush Fires - How you can help


So many people have reached out to us, asking how they can lend a hand to people in bush fire affected areas, as well as our volunteers.

There are a number of ways you can help.

The best way is to donate money. This allows people to buy the things they need, and it supports local businesses which have also been impacted.

We know many people want to donate physical items such as food and clothing but these take up much needed community space.


There are a number of funds which have been established to support those affected by the bush fires. These include:

Supporting our volunteers

Many people are choosing to show support to our volunteers. While brigades are provided equipment to protect the community, donations assist them deliver additional services to the community.

Thank you to everyone who has offered to help. We appreciate your generosity and kindness.

Other Support

There's a wide range of community groups which are providing support to fire affected areas, including Blazeaid and the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.

Thank You

The NSW RFS acknowledges the support of many kind organisations, big and small, as well as community groups, schools and individuals who have contributed to support the work of our volunteers across NSW.

There are too many to acknowledge individually but we would like to recognise a few for their generosity.
