Hole-y Cow! Recently, firefighters from the RFS and FRNSW were called to assist Coco the cow after she became stuck in a large hole and was unable to moo-ve. With no time for cow-ardice, crews and a vet worked tirelessly for three hours and managed to safely remove her.

With this week being National Volunteer Week, we are highlighting some of our fantastic volunteers from around the state, just like Barb Bloomfield. Joining the RFS in 2002, she has served alongside other family members and held the position of Captain and Senior Deputy Captain.

It’s National Volunteer Week! A week where we say thank you to all of our volunteers across the state for the valuable contribution they make to the #RFS and to their local communities. While they don't do it for praise, if you see them out and about this week, give them a wave.

If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities if smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice.
