THEY are the backbone of the community, working tirelessly behind the scenes and on the front line often in times of need.

They are the local volunteers who put their hand up time and time again during an emergency to help protect and serve the community.

On Sunday the volunteers of the Rural Fire Service were recognised by the NSW Rural Fire Service Association with a family day at Nimmitabel.

There was plenty of fun for the whole family with face painting, balloon making and a barbecue.
