Neighbourhood Safer Places on the NSW RFS Website

06/06/2022

Since 2010, the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) has been managing the Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP) programme across New South Wales. The NSP concept evolved out of the 2009 Victorian Bush Fires Royal Commission. The primary purpose of a NSP is the protection of human life.  Their function is to provide a place of last resort for members of the community to shelter during a bush fire.

It is an essential part of the NSP programme that accurate and up-to-date information about the status and location of local NSPs be provided to the community, and the NSW RFS updates the NSP information on their website regularly and is therefore able to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information concerning NSPs within each Local Government Area (LGA).

The NSW RFS has recently updated their public website and the link to all information regarding NSPs on the website is provided below:

The NSW RFS will continue to provide any changes to NSPs within a LGA and this link will ensure that any information provided remains up-to-date and consistent, and direct local residents to the current information regarding NSPs in your area.
