The NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) is the lead combat agency for bush fires in NSW. Working closely with other agencies, the NSW RFS respond to a range of emergencies including structure fires, motor vehicle accidents and storms that occur within rural fire districts.
The NSW RFS is widely acknowledged as the largest volunteer fire service in the world.
The NSW RFS has fire management responsibilities for over 95 percent of the landmass of the State and therefore the Service is spread across the length and breadth of NSW.
The NSW RFS is made up of 47 districts – our local is known as the MIA District.
In the MIA District, staff members assist volunteers and brigades to prepare for and respond to operational incidents. The Fire Control Centre, located in Griffith, forms the administrative and operational base of the MIA District.
The coordination and management of local brigade responses to fire and other incidents – including natural disasters, motor vehicle accidents and other civil emergencies – is undertaken through the Fire Control Centre.
