ACT Rural Fire Service Crews Assist NSW

Last night additional ACT Rural Fire Service (ACTRFS) crews were deployed, as we continue to assist with the Palarang fire, just outside of Braidwood.

Thank you to the 80 firefighters and additional Incident Management Officers who have been deployed over the past days and nights, along with teams from the ACT State Emergency Service, who have helped in the transporting of vehicles and crews.

The ACT has been actively involved in fire suppression and property protection and will continue to support NSW Rural Fire Service as needed.

We wish our crews safe travels and thank them for their ongoing support. Thank you also to the families of all our volunteers for supporting them to do this important work.

Our support to NSW will not impact on the level of fire protection to the ACT. To stay up to date and for more information on the NSW bushfires visit
