The chaplains meet every two years for a week of fellowship and training under the leadership of the NSW RFS Senior Chaplains Ian and Kerry Spall.
The NSW Rural Fire Service has over 70,000 volunteer fire fighters and a paid staff of over 800. The chaplains and family support workers minister across NSW supporting the agency by providing pastoral and spiritual care.
