Fire & Rescue NSW Annual Open Day

Posted on February 23, 2017

Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) fire stations will open their doors to the public for our annual ‘Open Day’ on Saturday the 20th of May 2017 between 10am and 2pm.

FRNSW would like to invite you and your family to come along and meet the dedicated fire fighters that look after your local community. Fire stations will put on demonstrations using fire fighting and rescue equipment as well as educate visitors on how they can be more fire safe in their homes.

Kids and adults will be able to experience what it’s like onboard a fire truck. Make sure you bring your camera to capture the moment!

Fire & Rescue NSW will also be providing some free handouts such as colouring-in activity books for the kids and fire safety brochures for adults.

Check back closer to the date to find out if your local station is participating.

ReAlarm - Smoke Alarm Campaign

Posted on May 03, 2016

Re-alarm your home against fire.

Ten years ago the NSW Government introduced new smoke alarm legislation to give the community greater warning of house fires. The legislation, introduced on 1 May 2006, specified that all residential buildings must have at least one working smoke alarm per floor.

With 2016 marking the 10th anniversary of the NSW smoke alarm legislation, this year NSW residents are being asked not to change their smoke alarm batteries but to replace their entire alarm.

As smoke alarms can be affected by dust, insects, humidity and age, manufacturers advise replacing them every 10 years to ensure they remain in working order. That means millions of smoke alarms across the State are now reaching their ‘best before date’.
