The AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents) program is a free, one-off service which supports some of our most at-risk community members.
The program helps people live more safely and confidently in their home in areas where bush fires may start.
The AIDER program is designed for people who have limited domestic support available from family, relatives, friends or other services. This could include older people, people living with a disability, and people who are already receiving community assistance and services. Their property must also be on bush fire prone land (land that can support a bush fire or be subject to bush fire attack).
AIDER services can include:
The current Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is an ongoing situation that continues to require changes to how we implement our services.
The NSW Rural Fire Service is continuing to monitor the situation, including taking steps to reduce the risk to our community members through delivery of the AIDER Program. The AIDER Program is currently suspended as the safety of our community is our priority. You may still register for the service below and a member of the NSW Rural Fire Service will contact you with an update when the service is available in your area.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
