It will be firefighter versus firefighter when on-call officers from 20 stations across NSW compete in the Fire and Rescue NSW Regional Championships at Unanderra on Saturday and Sunday. 

Teams from 19 FRNSW brigades, as well as a NSW Rural Fire Service team from Kootingal, are preparing to battle it out for line honours in the second round of the firefighters championship series. 

In the championships, teams of retained firefighters – on call from home or work to respond to fires and other emergencies – will compete in challenges that test their skills in deploying firefighting and rescue equipment. 

All events will be held at Unanderra Oval, from 8am to 4pm on Saturday and 8am to 1pm on Sunday. Entry is free. 

The opening ceremony is at 11am on Saturday.
