EVERYONE WELCOME AT FIRE & RESCUE OPEN DAY
Written on the 10 May 2017 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone, Mr Kevin Conolly MP is encouraging everyone to attend the Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Open Days on Saturday, 20 May to meet local firefighters and learn about fire prevention.
The Riverstone Fire Station on the corner of Riverstone Parade and Church Street Riverstone and the Schofields Fire Station on the corner of Stanhope Parkway and Hambledon Road Schofields are opening their fire station doors between 10am and 2pm. This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to come along and meet our local firefighters.
"Children will be able to climb aboard a fire engine, see firefighting equipment up close and take home an educational Brigade Kids activity booklet," Mr Conolly said.
"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" said Mr Conolly.
Minister for Emergency Services Troy Grant said this open day, FRNSW is focusing on fire prevention in the kitchen, urging people to 'Keep Looking When Cooking' and avoid a potentially fatal cooking-related fire injury.
"With winter coming, it's important FRNSW works with the community to remind us all that almost half of all home fires start in the kitchen, usually when people get distracted and leave things to burn on the stovetop," Mr Grant said.
