 The Wollondilly Unit continued to assist the RFS at the Oakdale Air Base, undertaking catering and logistics.

Members from across the Sydney Metropolitan continue to assist as call operators at the Bushfire Information Line, while the Fairfield unit assisted with the delivery of water to RFS members in the field.
