HMAS Albatross has sent three helicopters to help fight fires in the north of the state, and is ready to deploy helicopters in the Shoalhaven if required.
"Navy assets are the MRH-60R and MRH-90 helicopters, and training helicopters," 816 Squadron Commander Todd Glynn said.
"The helicopter school is providing local support and MRH-90 can operate out of here should it be needed locally.
"Further north we deployed an MRH-90 and two MRH-60Rs."
Commander Glynn said the two types of helicopter had very different roles.
The large MRH-90 can quickly move more of people and equipment than fire-fighting helicopters can.
The MRH-60R is able to provide unique assistance in identifying and assessing fires.
"One of the most interesting aspects of our support is that the weapons systems can be re-rolled to identify fires, ignition points and fire fronts," Commander Glynn said.
"We can use cameras to accurately plot the fire front and its direction. This information can be put into a system for the RFS, so they can use their resources more effectively."
He said although some Navy helicopters have the ability to bucket fires, they followed directions from the RFS on the best use of their resources.
He also said the work to protect lives and property was close to the heart for many personnel.
"These are highly trained young men and women, we all live in the region, and we all want to keep it safe," he said.
