Search our Bush Fire Bulletin (with Sitrep) online through Trove

 

The NSW Rural Fire Service, with the National Library of Australia, has digitised the entire collection of the Bush Fire Bulletin dating back to September 1952. All editions of the historical archived collection of the Bush Fire Bulletin are 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.
