Teamwork is crucial on the fire-front and all sections of the emergency services need to act as one, which is that they did all over the South Coast.
The Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) took on these monster blazes together in what was a united fire fighting front.
FRNSW, in the Batemans Bay and Ulladulla areas, provided crews from local areas, and organised groups of trucks, known as strike teams, to immediately attend or move up to areas when fire potential is increased.
Local crews from Ulladulla and Batemans Bay were joined by their colleagues from Kiama, Braidwood, Cooma, Shellharbour, Dapto and Warrawong.
A Fire and Rescue NSW spokesperson said they had the responsibility of many towns along the coast but these towns back on to bush or grasslands covered by RFS.
"We will regularly work together with RFS to deal with fires and have a system in place in terms of which organisation is in charge of any particular fire," the spokesperson said.
"The larger fires we are experiencing are under the jurisdiction of RFS, and we will provide assistance as requested and required.
"If we have a town that has a fire truck and a tanker, we are able to send the tanker out of town to assist with fires, to maintain our required coverage.
"We will send assistance with trucks and crews from currently quieter areas to high demand areas.
"We can move trucks and crews from Sydney to back-fill these areas. Some Sydney crews were sent directly to this fire.
"We have trucks at our training academy that can be utilised, as well as spare trucks which are normally utilised to exchange with vehicles requiring servicing."
The FRNSW's efforts were noticed by the RFS.
"We have been getting an awful lot of support from fire and rescue. They handled a lot of things for us last night (during the peak of the blaze last week)," Stewart Craig from the Bawley Point RFS said
Each FRNSW truck has a crew of four on the busiest day they had strike teams, plus local trucks which were about 70 firefighters
Fire and Rescue has a surge capacity and continues to support RFS in fires all over the state with firefighting resources as well as staff assisting with incident management, liaison, and safety officers to ensure operations are conducted as safely as possible.
