Home Fire Safety
The key to reducing the risk of fire occuring in your home and to surviving a house fire is being prepared. Everyone in your household should understand what risks there are in your home and what to do to minimise them.

Community Fire Units
Do you live in a bushland area in NSW?
Then there is a chance that your street is at risk of being impacted by a bushfire.
You and your neighbours could benefit from becoming a Community Fire Unit. By becoming a member you will receive training and equipment to prepare, prevent and protect you from bushfires.
Visit the Community Fire Units website
Throughout the year, the Fire & Rescue NSW runs community safety campaigns to target key safety risks.
The Fire & Rescue NSW researches and delivers a range of community safety initiatives and prevention programs.
General information from home fire safety and bushfire safety to specialised information such as medical oxygen checklists and children and fire fascination, the Fire & Rescue NSW has created a range of factsheets to help you stay fire safe all year round.
