Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith encourages local residents to take a behind the scenes look of their local station for the Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Open Day on Saturday, 15 May 2021.
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, not every station will be open however, FRNSW will be hosting outside Open Days at key locations across the state and this includes Penrith’s own Museum of Fire.
“FRNSW Open Day provides the ideal opportunity for children and adults to learn about fire prevention and meet local firefighters,” said Stuart Ayres.
“With the cooler months now approaching and people spending more times indoors, it’s important to get advice on installing or replacing smoke alarms, safe use of heaters and preparing a home fire escape plan.”
Local stations open for the day include Penrith Fire Station, Glenbrook Fire, Station and Cranebrook Fire Station from 10am to 2pm.
The Open Day includes safety demonstrations and the chance to inspect firefighting equipment and trucks used by our firefighters when responding to fires and other emergencies.
“I hope the Penrith community takes the time this FRNSW Open Day to visit one of our local stations to meet and thank our hardworking firefighters.”
FRNSW are also hosting Online Open Days on Thursday 13th and Friday 14th May 2021. Follow them on Facebook for further details: www.facebook.com/frnsw
