Join the NSW RFS
There are many reasons to join the NSW RFS. You may want to protect your families, your friends, your home and assets, your community, and your way of life.
The Supportive Employer Program recognises the vital contribution employers make to the NSW RFS, especially by releasing volunteers to attend incidents and other NSW RFS activities during work hours.
Youth in the NSW RFS
Children and young people play an important role within the NSW RFS and in local communities. Many NSW RFS brigades offer junior or cadet membership for young people aged from 12 years.
Support your local brigade
Many Rural Fire Brigades conduct fundraising activities at community events, like through coin collections or BBQs. These proceeds go directly to assisting the brigade with community activities.
We aim to lessen the impact of critical incidents on all NSW Rural Fire Service members involved and offer broad mental health support.
