THE RFS ROLE

Bushfire management in NSW is a cooperative effort of the whole community. The NSW RFS is the lead agency in combating bushfires and enabling the community to be better prepared and protected from bushfires.
Although fighting fires and protecting the community from emergencies is the most visible aspect of the RFS role, the Service has many other responsibilities as the leading agency for bushfire management and mitigation in NSW.
