Open Day Jindabyne Fire Department - Snowy Mountains Magazine
Come and meet your local firefighters and learn about home fire safety at the Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Open Day on Saturday, 15 May 2021.
Jindabyne Fire Station will be hosting an event between 10.00am and 2.00pm to showcase FRNSW’s broad capabilities.
Children will be able to see a fire truck, demonstrations and firefighting equipment whilst the grown-ups will be able to find out more about home fire safety.
Captain David Farmer said Open Day was an opportunity to show people that firefighters do so much more than fight fires.
“From fires, road crashes, hazardous material incidents and natural disasters to urban search and rescue, our crew are prepared for anything and ready to help anytime, anywhere,” he said.
“A large part of our role is to educate the community about home fire safety and that’s where Open Day comes in.
“This year we are focussing on the importance of having a working smoke alarm in your home.
“Each year, approximately 20 people die in NSW from fires that could have been prevented. Each death is a tragic loss for families, friends and the wider community.
“Additionally, for each fire fatality, there are also hundreds more people who survive a fire but suffer life-changing health consequences.
