Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) has provided grants or sponsorship to these community organisations:
Western Plains Zoo
FRNSW sponsors the Asian short-clawed otter at Dubbo’s Western Plains Zoo.
This sponsorship allows us to place fire safety messages outside these animal exhibits. This has proved a cost-effective way to reach large numbers of visitors to the zoos each year with fire safety messages. The sponsorship also underlines our wider role in protecting the environment from the dangers posed by hazardous material incidents.

The Burns Unit, The Children's Hospital at Westmead
Voluntary payroll deductions from members of FRNSW and additional proceeds from other fundraising activities, including FRNSW Band, are presented annually to Westmead Hospital’s No. 2 Bandaged Bear Station.

Clean Up Australia Day
We contribute annually to this important community initiative. In past years large debris such as concrete blocks, shopping trolleys, tyres, washing machines, car bodies and vehicle parts have been successfully removed by our firefighters. Our Bushfire and Rescue sections, together with hundreds of firefighters across the State, use their skills to remove pollution and waste from local bush and waterways.
