Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) holds its annual Open Day with fire stations across the State to give visitors a personal glimpse into Australia's busiest fire and rescue service. Open Day coincides with the launch of FRNSW’s Winter Fire Safety Campaign.
More than 80,000 people attend Open Day at their local station.
Open Day includes safety demonstrations, fire station tours and the chance to inspect firefighting equipment and trucks used by our firefighters when responding to fires and other emergencies. There is also an array of activities for kids.
Visitors can 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 a fire.
With winter fast approaching and research showing fire deaths peak in the winter months, Open Day is the perfect opportunity to visit your local fire station and learn first-hand how you can protect your family, home and contents and minimise the risk of a home fire.
