The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is the lead combat agency for bush fires in NSW. For over 100 years they have been a significant part of the history and landscape of NSW. The NSW RFS is widely acknowledged as the largest volunteer fire service in the world. Members of the NSW RFS are trained to very high levels of competence to ensure they know what to do in an emergency. The Service aims to reduce the likelihood and consequence of fires occurring. This involves comprehensive risk management programs to reduce bush fire hazards, reduce fire ignitions and the development of regulations for bush fire prone areas.
