NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS) volunteers from across the Far South Coast area will throw open the doors to their fire stations on September 28, for the annual RFS Open Day.
People will be able to meet their local volunteer fire fighters and get an insight into the range of activities undertaken by our dedicated volunteers.
Brigades will also be able to help provide a range of educational material which will assist people in making the best decisions for their families survival.
Superintendent John Cullen said this year’s Open Day marks the start of Bush Fire Awareness Week, which aims to raise awareness of the risks of bush fires and the best ways to protect yourself, your families and properties from fire.
Pambula Rural Fire Service will open from 10am -2pm.
"The NSW RFS Open Day is a fun and interesting day out for families and for the volunteers, who enjoy opening up their station and showing the local community what they do,” said Superintendent Cullen.
“It’s a great opportunity for the community to discover more about the role volunteers play at all types of emergencies, talk to fire fighters and see their specialised equipment.
“For children and adults alike, it’s also a chance to learn valuable skills on how to protect against bush and grass fires.
“People will also be able to talk to our members about they can join the NSW RFS and be part of a team helping support their local community.
“I’d encourage all local residents to come along on Saturday 28th September, join in the fun and thank our NSW RFS volunteers for the invaluable work they do,” said Superintendent Cullen.
