These are the firefighters from NSW - and beyond - working around the clock to keep you safe during this week's catastrophic fire conditions.
With Tuesday already labelled a "catastrophic" day for bushfire danger across NSW, the state's volunteer firefighters have begun dispatching in the thousands.
Some flew to the state's more worst-hit areas to join the firefighting effort.
More than 3,000 firefighters have been placed on standby ready to battle the day's fires.
Another 80 aircrafts were also prepared to deploy around NSW.
A catastrophic fire danger rating - the highest possible level - is in place for areas covering about 6 million residents.
More than 50 fires are burning across NSW - about half of which are not contained.
Australian Defence Force personnel have also been placed on standby to assist NSW's firefighters as needed.
Fire danger ratings remain high in other parts of the country, with winds expected to pick up on Wednesday.
In NSW, three fires remain at "emergency level" - two near Taree in mid-north NSW and another in northern NSW's Torrington.
Winds up to 60km/h hit northern NSW on Tuesday morning and are expected to push the blaze further into Queensland on Wednesday.
NSW Fire and Rescue fighters were also sent around the state to areas most in need of assistance.
