Ever wanted to take a look inside a fire station?
Well this weekend is your chance.
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) will hold its annual Open Day on Saturday, May 19 between 10am and 2pm.
Visitors will get a glimpse into Australia's busiest fire and rescue service. They will have the opportunity to hop on a fire truck and chat with firefighters to learn more about what they do every day.
From chemical spills, car accidents and natural disasters to prevention education and humanitarian relief across the state, the country and even overseas or supporting other emergency service agencies, FRNSW firefighters are prepared for anything and ready to help anyone, anywhere and at any time.
The open day will include safety demonstrations, fire station tours and the chance to inspect equipment and trucks used by our firefighters when responding to all kinds of fire and rescue emergencies. There will also be an array of activities for all children who attend.
It’s a great time to also speak to firefighters first-hand about fire safety in the home, including how to install and maintain smoke alarms and how to develop a home escape plan to ensure they can quickly and safely escape in the event of a fire.
