Visit you local fire station on open day

Firefighters are encouraging people of the Northern Rivers to visit their local fire station for the Fire and Rescue NSW annual Fire Station Open Day next month.

Fire stations across the state will be open from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, May 21, and families are encouraged to come along and meet their local firefighters and learn more about fire prevention.

A range of free activities will be on offer, including firefighting demonstrations, station tours and fire safety presentations.

Firefighters will also be able to provide advice on installing smoke alarms, changing smoke alarm batteries and preparing a home fire escape plan.

Children will be able to see fire engines and firefighting equipment up close, which is always one of the highlights of this much-anticipated day.

For the first time, Fire and Rescue NSW is this year partnering with LEGO City to spread the fire safety message on the fire station open day.

The partnership will see a new Brigade Kids activity booklet and LEGO City minifigures available for Open Day visitors.

With May being the 10th anniversary of the introduction of smoke alarm legislation and ahead of winter, the open day is also a timely opportunity to talk to the experts about protecting your home from fire by replacing your smoke alarms.
