Uniforms and equipment

As well as the obvious dangers of heat, firefighters are exposed to toxic fumes, sharp objects, uneven ground, slippery surfaces, biological fluids, spilt chemicals and electricity. Because of this firefighting uniforms need to provide the best protection possible for our firefighters.


We rely heavily on our telecommunications infrastructure to enable rapid response to emergency incidents.

Fire and Rescue NSW runs an accelerant detection canine program, the first of its kind for Australasian fire services.
