Sitrep - our Bulletin during the 1970s now online

 

Almost 18 months ago the NSW Rural Fire Service joined forces with the National Library of Australia to digitise the entire collection of the Bush Fire Bulletin dating back to September 1952. This resulted in all editions of the historical archived collection of the Bush Fire Bulletin being available online and fully searchable.

Unfortunately, there was no coverage of our bulletin in the mid 1970s. This gap no longer exists with the digitisation of the Sitrep Bulletin from 1976 to 1978. During these years the State Emergency Services of New South Wales and the Bush Fire Council of New South Wales produced this joint publication that incorporated both our Bush Fire Bulletin and the SES Bulletin.

Browse the Sitrep publication online using this link or search the Bush Fire Bulletin and Sitrep in Trove by using the search box in the image above and clicking Go. More information on searching can be located on the Bush Fire Bulletin website or contacting your library.
