RFS Activ is live - its time to stop using BART and Rover

16 Feb 2021 9:34 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


The RFS's new Activ app is now available and our Brigade has moved to it. So if you are still using BART or Rover it's time to get rid of them and install the new app.


You can download Activ from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.


To sign in you'll need your myRFS userid and password. If you don't have them head to https://www.myrfs.nsw.gov.au and use the self help tool to reset it. If you need further help contact the Help Desk (details are on that page) or contact one of the Brigade Officers.


There are some great things about RFS Activ including:

  • members can be indicate if they are responding to an incident (as you could in BART and Rover)
  • members can set their availability so we have a good idea of who is likely to respond
  • District Office and the RFS State Operations Centre can see who is responding and request additional resources if required

The next big steps forward for our Brigade are:

  • to move Brigade training events to Activ (starting February 2021)
  • for all members to update their availability in Activ


You can read more about how to do this in that training material attached.
