The NSW Rural Fire Service recognises that children and young people can make substantial contributions to household and community resilience. Teachers who are looking for resources to support their lessons are encouraged to access information on the NSW RFS Teachers webpage on the NSW RFS website.
The NSW RFS Library is able to support primary school teachers in several ways. Our Children’s Bush Fire Collection is a collection of children’s picture books that that focus on bush fires. This collection is for 4 – 8 year olds. For Stage 3 students (Years 5 and 6) studying bush fire as part of the syllabus there are resources available online here in addition to the library’s list of books selected for students’ reading.
The NSW RFS Library also has an extensive range of books available for secondary school students to borrow. This includes both hardcopy books and access to our eBook collection.
Fuel is the new website where NSW RFS members log in to access online learning and associated learning resources. Interactive eLearning modules, most 15 minutes or less, allow members at their own pace in their own location to complete the theory content for the NSW RFS Bush Firefighter (BF) qualification online. 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.
