New name for the NSW Fire Brigades
On 1 January 2011 the NSW Fire Brigades changed its name to Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW).
Today's FRNSW is a contemporary, service-based organisation which has grown significantly since first being established just on a hundred years ago.
The new name more accurately reflects the wider scope of services offered to the community and proudly symbolises and supports the organisation’s vision for the future.
While our name and look changed in 2011, there has been no change to the way emergency services are delivered in NSW. Fire and Rescue NSW continues to be part of the state’s network of vital emergency services which work together 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep the community safe.
Please be aware that in an emergency, the public should continue to access Fire and Rescue NSW by calling the Triple Zero (000) emergency number.
