Visit a Fire Station Virtually for Fire and Rescue NSW Open Day 2020

| |

Every year Fire and Rescue NSW holds its annual Open Day. This is an opportunity to visit your local fire station, hop in a fire truck and chat with local firefighters to learn more about what they do every day. However, this year, due to COVID-19, Fire and Rescue NSW has had to suspend this event to abide by social distancing measures. As a result of these measures, this year, Open Day 2020 will be moving online and running for a whole week. From Saturday 16 May to Friday 22 May, you can follow Fire and Rescue NSW on Facebook for all updates and live streams.

NSW Fire Rescue Open Day

During this week, Fire and Rescue NSW will be live streaming from fire stations across New South Wales giving station tours, safety advice and answering any burning questions you might have.

Viewers at home will get a glimpse into Australia’s busiest fire and rescue service. They will have the opportunity to see fire trucks up close and send through questions to firefighters to learn more about what they do every day.

NSW Fire Rescue Open Day

With more of us home than ever, it’s a great time to listen 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 you can quickly and safely escape in the event of a fire.
