NORTHERN TABLELANDS FIRE STATIONS OPENING UP TO PUBLIC THIS SATURDAY

MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall is encouraging members of the community to meet local firefighters and visit their local Fire and Rescue Station this Saturday, 30 May, as part of the annual Fire & Rescue NSW Open Day.

 

More than 330 fire stations across the state, inlcuding all throughout the region, will throw open their doors on from 10am to 2pm.

 

Mr Marshall, who will visit and talk with firefighters at the Armidale station, said the annual Fire & Resuce NSW Open Day was a great way for local residents to get a greater understanding of the important role firefighters play in the community.

 

“Our community depends on the hard work of local firefighters which is why open days like this are so important,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“On Saturday our local firefighters will give safety demonstrations, fire prevention advice as well as fire station tours.

 

“Children can also see the fire trucks as well as firefighting equipment – there will be something there for the whole family.

 

“Our firefighters respond to life-threatening incidents every day to protect our community – whether it’s a huge factory blaze, a cliff-top rescue, a vehicle crash with people trapped, or an incident involving hazardous materials.”

 

Fire & Rescue NSW Open Day coincides with the launch of the annual Winter Fire Safety campaign.

 

Mr Marshall will visit the Armidale Fire & Rescue Station at 11am on Saturday.
