RFSA Conference 2013

The town of Mudgee hosted about 500 members of the Rural Fire Service at the Rural Fire Service Association (RFSA) conference from Friday to Sunday at Parklands Resort, 21st June 2013. The biennial event is one way of thanking the volunteers and salaried members of the RFS for the time and energy they put into the organisation.

The RFSA sponsors the attendance and accommodation of over 400 guests, while others fund their own attendance. Volunteers from around the state met at the conferences to discuss common interests, the industry and best practice, and to stay abreast of new developments.

Guest speakers included Police and Emergency Services minister Michael Gallagher and the NSW Rural Fire Service Commissioner, Shane Fitzsimmons.
