Being part of the NSWRFS was a huge part of my life over 8 and a bit years. It helped me gain confidence and an ability to help my community. The training is fantastic and can be taken out of the service to further your paid career and gives you the ability to create a career withing the service.

Great place to volenteer

very diverse, can take you anywhere, no job is the same however is only volenteering. from your brigade you will respond to many incidents within your local area, ours is in an urban environment so we mostly get house fires, car accidents and assisting paramedics. additionally you will go to other areas to assist with bushfires and large incidents.


free lunches, visit many new places


Can be dangerous, many logistics issues
