In emergency, phone 000  NSW Rural Fire Service

Wallaroo Volunteer Rural Fire Brigade
Community Information

Dawn breaks over the Wallaroo areaWallaroo Brigade's volunteer firefighters are dedicated and well trained, but unlike city firefighters, who are paid to wait in a station and respond very quickly to fires, our fire fighters will normally be at home or at work and may take longer to respond to any fire.
In a rural area like ours, all members of the community must take responsibility to protect themselves and their properties from fires. 

Community Safety Resources

There is a great deal of information available on the NSW RFS website. (NSW RFS)
Information about personal and home fire safety can be found here. (Home Safety)
Every family that lives in a bush-fire prone area (which is the vast majority of rural NSW) should have a Bush Fire Survival Plan. This link will take you through to a document to help you develop your plan. (Bush Fire Survival Plan) (1.8M)
