Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch, is encouraging people to take the opportunity of the Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Open Day on May 20, to meet local firefighters and learn about fire prevention.
“FRNSW is throwing open fire station doors across the state between 10am and 2pm, and it’s a great opportunity for people of all ages to come along and meet their local firefighters,” Mr Crouch said.
“Children will be able to climb aboard a fire engine, see firefighting equipment up close and take home an educational Brigade Kids activity booklet.
“For the grown-ups it’s a good opportunity to speak with the professionals to find out more about fire prevention, get advice on installing or replacing smoke alarms and preparing a home fire escape plan,” Mr Crouch said.
Minister for Emergency Services, Mr Troy Grant, said this open day FRNSW is focusing on fire prevention in the kitchen, urging people to ‘keep looking when cooking’ and avoid potentially fatal cooking related injury.
