A tribute to firefighters
On Saturday night, 11 January 2020, the famous sails of the Sydney Opera House were lit up in a special tribute.
While there were many people, agencies, groups and members of the community involved in the 2019/2020 firefighting effort, this was a special recognition for NSW Rural Fire Service volunteers who have worked so hard to protect communities.
Imagine your house was saved by a crew of volunteer firefighters. How would you like to thank them?
Volunteers are an important part of the social fabric in Australia.
The NSW Rural Fire Service is the largest volunteer firefighting agency in the world.
