As blazes burned out of control in northern NSW last week, volunteers members of the Milton Rural Fire Brigade joined the frontline.
A number of members were deployed to Grafton and Glen Innes areas to assist with fire control and mapping efforts.
Captain John Olle, Alister Nairn, Senior Deputy Captain Tanzi Lea, Deputy Captain Glenn Patterson and Stuart Baker were on strike teams last week and were involved fighting the catastrophic conditions on Friday south of Grafton at Nymboida.
Gary Barton and Alex Free from Manyana Rural Fire Brigade were also deployed to the same area.
Another two members of the Milton Brigade will be heading north to assist this week.
Retained Fire and Rescue members from Batemans Bay, Moruya and Ulladulla arrived in Armidale on Friday. They will be there for a week.
Members included Nathan Garrett (Ulladulla), Shane Halliday (Batemans Bay), Dane Biden (Moruya) and retained captain Paul Lyons (Batemans Bay).
On Monday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian declared a state of emergency, ahead of the catastrophic conditions predicted for most of the state this week.
With the extreme fire conditions predicted on Tuesday for the Shoalhaven District, Milton RFS is urging all residents to be well prepared and highly vigilant.
