Picture: Phil Blatch ~PP200227 RFS HQ operations officer Peter McKechnie outlines the drought map of NSW. ~PP200231 THE Rural Fire Service officially announced the start of the bushfire season at its Homebush Bay headquarters on Wednesday and warned residents to prepare their properties. Emergency Services Minister Tony Kelly said communities across NSW should not expect a repeat of last year's mild fire season. Mr Kelly said the start of fire season meant now was the time for residents to prepare their properties. ''There is no question that we will have bushfires this fire season,'' he said. ''But the intensity of those fires will depend on the conditions at the time and the level of prepared- ness within the community.'' The RFS is the world's largest volunteer firefighting service with 70,000 professional and dedi- cated volunteers. Mr Kelly said they were well prepared for the coming season. ''Our firefighters are ready for the fire season and it's important that householders and the com- munity are also prepared,'' he said. ''By taking a few simple steps now, residents can increase the chance of their home surviving the impact of fire and reduce the potential for injury.'' Mr Kelly said residents should clear leaf litter and other fuel from around their homes and ensure they have a fire plan so everyone knows what to do in the event of a fire. The RFS headquarters monitor fires statewide and provide local fire stations with all necessary resources. ''The state operations centre is divided between hubs such as the RTA and Defence Department which assist in bushfire emerg- encies, and we provide support to management teams locally,'' RFS Inspector Ben Shepherd said. The operations centre has two large screens mounted on the wall which display weather conditions statewide. ''We have over 100 helicopters and planes available to us on call and make decisions statewide on what areas need resources and where they need to be moved,'' Mr Shepherd said.
