About emergency services

Bushfires NT

Bushfires NT volunteers are regularly called on to help full-time firefighters at grass and bushfires, vehicle accidents, floods and cyclones.

In some remote communities, volunteer firefighters respond to all types of incidents as the nearest career firefighters are often hundreds of kilometres away.

Volunteer members respond in the first instance to emergency calls within their district.

They also attend emergencies in other volunteer fire brigade areas when help is needed.
