PROTECT THE PROTECTORS: Northern Rivers firefighters are calling on the NSW government to protect all emergency service workers by introducing a 40km/h zone for motorists

SENIOR Rural Fire Services personnel are lobbying to the State Government to introduce a 40km/h incident zone in an effort to keep volunteers safe at crash sites.

NSW RFS Northern Rivers zone manager, Superindendent Michael Brett, said emergency service workers faced risks when attending motor vehicle crashes, Hazmat or fire incidents and did not need the additional worry caused when passing drivers refused to slow down.
