About the Event

We are finally going back to having an in- person education night which will be held at the Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Headquarters in Greenacre NSW. This will give everybody the opportunity to network the ‘old-fashioned’ way. For our interstate members or those that cannot make it on the night, don’t worry, a live digital presentation will also be available.

The pattern of wildland fires has changed in the Macarthur Zone from 2012 to 2023. This presentation will demonstrate how persistence in investigating, data collection and mapping each fire event, along with sharing information with NSW Police has led to a reduction of deliberate lit fires to be a positive outcome for the local community.

Presenter: Paul Sweeney has been a dedicated member of the NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) since 1989. Paul retired in 2012 as the Coordinator of Fire Investigations, Region East. He continues to volunteer (with others) as a fire investigator tasked with investigating structural and wildfire events in the with the NSW Rural Fire Service in the Macarthur Zone in South West Area of Sydney. Paul also holds a committee position with the NSW AFI.
