TASMANIAN authorities will help their interstate counterparts with the devastating fires that have hit New South Wales.
Tasmania Fire Service, Forestry Tasmania and the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service are today organising specialist fire service management personnel to fly to NSW.
The 20 staff will help the NSW Rural Fire Service and the communities they serve.
The incident management teams will be deployed for six days, undertaking duties such as incident control, planning, logistics and public information.
The three TFS members in the impact assessment teams will work closely with NSW fire and police personnel to assess property damaged by the fire.
TFS deputy chief officer Gavin Freeman said Tasmania was not currently expecting significant dangerous fire weather, so other assistance to NSW was a possibility.
