Riverina Highlands Zone is made up of 2 Local Government Areas, Part of Gundagai Council (formally Gundagai Shire) and Snowy Valleys Council (formally Tumut and Tumbarumba). The Zone is administered in Tumut, at the Fire Control Centre located in the Riverina Highlands Building, 76 Capper Street Tumut.
The Zone is made up of thirty-nine brigades from Muttama in the north near Cootamundra to Bringenbrong in the south near Khancoban and includes a Zone Cadet Brigade. The Brigades are made up entirely of volunteers who give up their time to train, maintain equipment and most importantly protect their communities from the ravages of fire.
