The guys and girls from the Rural Fire Service and the NSW Fire Service are often joined by other agencies to help in any way possible.
 
During large fires, the SES are called to help provide welfare, transport as well as personnel to man the roadblocks. The various GRN talkgroups that the SES use can be found elsewhere on www.newcastlescan.com
