Get Ready Weekend (September 14-15) is a family friendly event and a great opportunity to meet your local firefighters, get involved in kids' activities, climb abroad a fire truck, see firefighting displays and specialist equipment.
NSW RFS Superintendent John Cullen said all residents on the Far South Coast need to be prepared for the bush fire season.
"Volunteer firefighters will be available to talk to about the simple things you can do to reduce your bush fire risk, like having a bush fire survival plan," Superintendent Cullen said.
"Preparing for bush fires is easier than people may think. Have a five-minute conversation and ask yourself - when will you go, what will you take and where will you go?"
