There are many members of the public and RFS Volunteers that are continuing to support the VFFA’s “Putting the RURAL back into the Rural Fire Service” campaign.
The objective of this campaign is to decentralise the operations, logistic and training sections of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service (RFS) Head Office to country New South Wales, west of the Blue Mountains.
The existing plans to build a new RFS Head Office in Greater Sydney could easily be modified to create a State Emergency Operations Centre that is badged as such (with a State Government Logo) and used by all emergency service agencies.
The wording of this VFFA petition are as follows:
The undersigned petitioners therefore ask the Legislative Assembly to fully explore all avenues to decentralise the operations, logistic and training sections of the New South Wales Rural Fire Service, Head Office to country New South Wales, west of the Blue Mountains. We approach this petition as putting the ‘Rural’ back into the New South Rural Fire Service.
