Theory assessments can be then completed online and the results uploaded into SAP.

Fuel also provides a Knowledge Hub, an online information repository for the traditional NSW RFS manuals.

Members may access Fuel using the link on MyRFS or using their MyRFS login details at the website fuel.rfs.nsw.gov.au Further information is available online from the Fuel eLearning User Guide and the Knowledge Hub Information Sheet.

Fireflies - your favourite TV series at last on DVD

FirefliesIt has been over ten years since the ABC kept audiences captivated on Saturday evenings with the drama, Fireflies, detailing the lives of volunteer firefighters in the small community of Lost River. If you want to relive that long hot summer fighting fires with Backa and his fire crew, then this is the series for you. 

Produced by John Edwards (The Secret Life of Us, Police Rescue, Offspring and Big Sky), the whole series of 22 episodes, including the telemovie, has been digitalised from beta master tape to DVD after the library obtained permission from the production company, Endemol Shine. Several sets are available for NSW RFS Members to borrow so don’t hesitate in reviving the tension between Joey and Fifi, the love affair between Luisa and Mike, or the heartbreak Perry faces. To borrow a copy, contact your NSW RFS library.
