NO to Red or Orange ribbons: an SWS sign preferred

Fire and Rescue NSW advise:

We have been getting a lot of questions regarding a push across social media to tie red or orange ribbons to mailboxes to show appreciation for Firefighters.

Whilst we appreciate any tribute to our firefighters, Fire and Rescue NSW are not behind any official call to place ribbons anywhere.

We encourage anyone who has a Static Water Supply (pool, dam, large water tank) to instead fix a SWS sign to their mailbox or front fence. You can get an SWS sign from our local fire station or otherwise write it on your fence or mailbox and our crews will know they can access this water supply should they need to.

Thank you to everyone who is thinking of us, sending their thanks and words of support, we really appreciate it and it means a lot
