Family fun at Fire and Rescue NSW Open Day at Richmond and Windsor fire stations

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) stations at Richmond and Windsor will be throwing open their doors to the public for the annual FRNSW Open Day.

Bring the family along to either (or both) events, happening concurrently on Saturday, May 18, from 10am until 2pm, to get a glimpse of the firefighting life.

FRNSW Commissioner, Paul Baxter, said Open Day - which occurs at hundreds of stations around the state - was an opportunity to show people that FRNSW firefighters do so much more than fight fires.

"Our firefighters do fight fires and save people from burning buildings, but our mission and our capabilities extend far beyond fire response," he said.

"From road crashes, hazardous material incidents and natural disasters to urban search and rescue and humanitarian relief, our firefighters are prepared for anything and ready to help anyone, anytime, anywhere."

Richmond firefighter Sherie Williams said visitors could look forward to firefighting demonstrations, learning about fire safety, touring the fire stations, meeting the firefighters who make it all happen and (most importantly for the kids!) climbing aboard one of the numerous fire trucks.

She said Richmond would be hosting a free sausage sizzle and giveaways for the kids.

"So come along and bring the whole family down for a fun filled day," she said.

The Richmond fire station is at 43 March Street, Richmond, and the Windsor fire station is at 1 Anderson Place, South Windsor.
