Rural firefighting

This gallery is dedicated to the volunteers of the Rural Fire Service ("RFS") with whom I have worked mainly in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. The RFS is a unique organisation with more than 70,000 members from across New South Wales.

Apart from fire operations RFS members also participate in community engagement and fundraising activities. This gallery will feature a range of images of activities, some of which may make more sense to fellow members.

As these images are often taken while on duty some are captured by simple cameras such as iPhones in between performing fire duty.

You can find out more about the Rural Fire Service at http://www.rfs.nsw.gov.au/

Please note that this gallery and images displayed are not on behalf of the Rural Fire Service. Furthermore, any captions, description or comment are not an official communication by or for the Rural Fire Service.
