The Mullumbimby Fire and Rescue NSW fire station is one of many stations across the state that will open its doors to the public on May 18 from 10am till 2pm to give a glimpse into how fire and rescue services operate.
Other fire stations to open their doors locally – at the same time – include Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay. Bangalow will open May 19. In Mullum, the day will include a door entry and rescue demonstration at 11am, a car rescue demonstration at 12pm, ongoing fire station tours, and the chance to inspect firefighting equipment and trucks used by firefighters when responding to fires and other emergencies.
Organisers say, ‘Visitors can also speak to firefighters firsthand about fire safety in the home, including how to install and maintain smoke alarms and how to develop a home escape plan to ensure they can quickly and safely escape a fire’.
‘From fire prevention and response, hazardous materials, car accidents, and natural disasters to education and humanitarian relief overseas, FRNSW firefighters are prepared for anything and ready to help anyone, anywhere, and at any time’.
