Welcome to Fire and Rescue NSW
FRNSW is one of the world’s largest urban fire and rescue services and is the busiest in Australia. Our overriding purpose is to enhance community safety, quality of life, and confidence by minimising the impact of hazards and emergency incidents on the people, property, environment and economy of NSW.
Prepared for anything.
The caretaker period for the NSW Election commenced on 1 March 2019. No ministerial press releases or related information issued by the Government from 1 March 2019 will be available on this website.
Our firefighting family is in mourning following the death of one of our Senior Firefighters. He passed away in hospital following a medical episode while on duty.
We are providing support to the firefighter’s family, friends and colleagues during this tragic time.
