Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) has a responsibility for urban and bushfire fighting, rescues, hazardous materials incidents, fire safety and prevention, bushfire hazard reduction and public education. We also have a duty to protect the environment that we operate within. Climate change and other environmental issues have a direct impact on the work of FRNSW.

FRNSW, by it's existence and operation, also has a large impact on the environment. To reduce adverse environmental impacts, we have policies and procedures in place to reduce the risks to the environment, and to ensure that each risk is assessed and appropriately treated. These policies and procedures are continually reviewed to ensure that best environmental management is followed.
