Helensburgh and Corrimal fire stations open today to the public

FIRE and Rescue NSW’s Open Day activities are underway today (Saturday, May 15) at Helensburgh and Corrimal until 2pm.

FRNSW Deputy Commissioner Jeremy Fewtrell said the ban on metropolitan firefighters participating in Open Day activities had been lifted and an agreement reached with the Fire Brigade Employee Union (FBEU).

“The annual FRNSW Open Day event offers families and children the opportunity to take a look inside their local FRNSW fire station, meet firefighters and learn about vital home fire safety,” he said.

“There will be something for the whole family at the event – kids will be able to get up close with the fire truck, whilst the grown-ups will be able to find out more about home fire safety.”

All planned activities and events are consistent with NSW Health guidelines to ensure the safety of both the NSW community and firefighters.

The open day at Helensburgh and Corrimal finishes at 2pm today. To find out more, visit www.fire.nsw.gov.au/openday
