Hop on in to visit the RFS at the Sydney Easter Show


RFS members from across the state will showcase the role that volunteers play in communities across NSW, at this year’s Sydney Royal Easter Show.

Commissioner of the RFS, Rob Rogers, said members will also be providing fire safety advice and giving children a chance to be a volunteer firefighter at the Show.

“The Easter Show is one of the biggest annual events in Sydney, if not NSW, and it is all about the city connecting with rural communities where the majority of our 70,000 volunteers come from,” Commissioner Rogers said.

“Rural communities are at the heart of the RFS and I encourage anyone, whether you’re from the city or the country, to show your support for our men and women who support our communities every day.

“This year’s RFS display showcases how to best prepare your property against bush and grass fire and will provide information on the recently implemented Australian Fire Danger Rating System.”

Children attending the show will also be able to get a photo in the seat of an RFS firefighting vehicle.

“Our members will be on hand giving adults and families the chance to discuss some of the best ways to protect and prepare your home and family from bush fire, and give the kids a chance to have some fun as well,” Commissioner Rogers said.

"Our firefighters consistently train and do what they can to prepare. While at the Easter Show, take the time to say hello to our members and get some information on how you can prepare as well.”

The Sydney Royal Easter Show runs from 6 to 17 April at Sydney Olympic Park. The RFS stand is in Hall 2 of the Home and Lifestyle Pavilion.
