A man in the Taree area has been arrested after allegedly threatening Rural Fire Service volunteers with a chainsaw.

The menacing attack follows a previous assault on RFS volunteers the previous day by a separate man.

Yesterday, police arrested another man after he allegedly threatened two Rural Fire Service volunteers on the NSW mid north coast.

Officers say the 44-year-old approached the volunteers and threatened to hurt them and damage their property.

The two volunteers had to stop their fire-fighting activities during the confrontation.

The man has been charged with two counts of intimidation and possessing a knife in a public place.

He attended Forster Local Court this morning and was granted bail.
