Bushfires NT volunteers are regularly called on to help full-time firefighters at grass and bushfires, vehicle accidents, floods and cyclones.
In some remote communities, volunteer firefighters respond to all types of incidents as the nearest career firefighters are often hundreds of kilometres away.
Volunteer members respond in the first instance to emergency calls within theirs or other districts when help is needed.
