Funding boost to NSW RFS
Thursday, 05 February 2015
NSW Premier Mike Baird will boost the state's bush firefighting artillery and has committed to the protection of almost 600,000 homes over the next four years.
The boost will include Large Air Tankers, which will be trialled for the first time in NSW, as well as additional hazard reduction activities, an enhanced fire trail network and investment in regionally-based firefighting training centres.
RFSA President Tim Arnott has congratulated the Government on this commitment to enhance the state's firefighting capacity as it supports a number of initiatives recently published in the RFSA State Election Policy 2015 - Building a Rural Fire Service for 2030.
