Dubbo has played host to a meeting of the commissioners of the state’s emergency services and Minister for Emergency Services Troy Grant on Friday.

Fire and Rescue NSW Commissioner Paul Baxter, Marine Rescue NSW Commissioner Stacey Tannos, NSW RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons, NSW SES Commissioner Mark Smethurst, NSW VRA Commissioner Mark Gibson and NSW Police Force Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn were part of the State Rescue Board meeting at Taronga Western Plains Zoo.

Mr Grant said the main item of business at the meeting was to ensure the services all worked well together, and also how to cater for falling volunteer numbers.

“Across NSW there has been gaps because a lot of our rescue reliance is on volunteers, and in some of our communities volunteer numbers have dwindled and that has put pressure on our capability,” Mr Grant said.

“They’ve done a review and the main business today is to make sure the services work better together and they are looking to cross work and cross-train.”
