Open access information

Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA Act), when deciding whether or not to release information, Government agencies must consider whether there is an overriding public interest against releasing the information.

For more information on how Government agencies apply the public interest test when determining whether or not to release information, refer to the fact sheet [external] on this topic from the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioners website.

As Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) makes decisions about open access information that may not be disclosed due to an overriding public interest, it will publish this information here on its website.

For more information, please contact the FRNSW's Right to Information Officer on email or phone (02) 9269 6447.
