RURAL Fire Service volunteer firefighters can access the Oberon swimming pool for free under an initiative from the Y NSW.

The Y NSW recently took over management of the pool.

"At times of national disaster, the Y's role is to support our local communities. Our firefighters are heroes and have been placed under immense stress for the past three months," Y CEO Susannah Le Bron said.

"Nothing is more important than our volunteers' mental and physical health at this intense time, so we are inviting volunteer firies and their families to take a much deserved break."

Volunteer firies do not need to be Y members for free admission, according to the Y NSW.

Partners and children of firies attending along with their loved one will also be admitted for free until February 29.

Access to additional services, including classes, for free may be available during this period. For more information, inquire at the pool.
