Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) provides fire, rescue and hazmat services in cities and towns across NSW. Most of its activities are funded by levies paid by insurance companies and local councils, as well as state budget funding.

However, FRNSW may charge for some of its services, such as false alarm call-outs to Automatic Fire Alarm systems, attendance at hazmat incidents, statutory fire safety inspections and reports, and attendance at special events. IPART is reviewing the services FRNSW may charge for, and will make recommendations on these charges, including prices to apply from 1 September 2022.

We have released an issues paper and information paper and we want your feedback on our proposed approach to the review and the issues we have identified. Submissions are due by 12 October.
