This resulted in all editions of the historical archived collection of the Bush Fire Bulletin being available online and fully searchable.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">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.</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: Arial, sans-serif;">Browse the Sitrep publication online using this <a href="http://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-578112846" target="_blank">link</a> or search the Bush Fire Bulletin and Sitrep in Trove by using the search box in the image above and clicking Go.
