Firefighting demonstrations, station tours and safety presentations will be on offer at the Fire and Rescue NSW open day this Saturday.
“Keep looking when cooking” is the theme of this year’s open day, which will run from 10am to 2pm at most FRNSW stations.
FRNSW Commissioner Paul Baxter said this year’s theme is focusing on fire prevention in the kitchen – where almost half of all house fires start, usually when people fail to keep an eye on the stovetop.
“Regrettably, hundreds of injuries occur every year from cooking-related fires, and people have lost their lives as a result,” he said.
Children will be able to see the fire engines and firefighting equipment up close, and will also be able to take home a “Brigade Kids” activity booklet.
