Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) will hold its annual Open Day on Saturday 18 May 2019 between 10.00am and 2.00pm and everyone is invited to come along.
Enter a suburb or postcode below to find your closest fire station.
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.
Open Day includes 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.
For more information, contact your local fire station.
Important: fire station availability
Please note that some fire stations will be closed or participating at a neighbouring fire station. Because communities across NSW rely on our help for so many reasons, you may get to your fire station on Open Day and it is closed while responding to an emergency. The station officers will leave a note on the door if this happens, to let you know.
