NSW Rural Fire Service Control Centre

The NSW Rural Fire Service is the world's largest fire service with 70,000 volunteer members providing emergency services to over 95% of NSW. At the district or local government level, Fire Control Officers are appointed to manage the day-to-day affairs of brigades. In some areas, neighbouring rural fire districts have agreed to pool resources, joining together to form more efficient zones.

Getting Involved

Becoming a volunteer firefighter is easier than most people think. Port Stephens Rural Fire District offer training ranging from bush firefighting, village firefighting and first aid to breathing apparatus operation.

We don't just offer firefighting roles, we have a multitude of areas that require volunteers. Communications, catering, logistics, planning and aviation support are critical there is a job for nearly everyone in the RFS.

We rely heavily on the support of people from all backgrounds and cultures in our community. The people that make up our Service are as different as the society that we protect.

The minimum age to join the Rural Fire Service as a volunteer is 16.
