Fire and Rescue NSW open day this Saturday

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) will hold its annual open day this Saturday, May 20.

The Nowra Fire Station in Bridge Road and the Berry Fire Station in Prince Alfred Street will be among stations across the state giving visitors a personal glimpse into Australia's busiest fire and rescue service.

Both stations will be open from 10am to 2pm but if you get to your station and it is closed, it may be because they are responding to an emergency.

The open day will include safety demonstrations, fire station tours and the chance to inspect firefighting equipment and trucks used by firefighters when responding to fires and other emergencies.

There will also be 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.

More than 80,000 people are expected to attend open day activities at their local fire station across the state.
