Tea Gardens Fire Station will be open from 10am to 2pm with a range of free activities including firefighting demonstrations, station tours and safety presentations.

Families can also see the fire trucks and firefighting and rescue equipment up close and chat to local firefighters about the critical work they do to keep communities safe.

Station Captain Jim Wisemantel said Open Day was an opportunity to show people that FRNSW firefighters do so much more than fight fires.

“We 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.”

Station Captain Jim Wisemantel said Open Day was also a great time to talk to the experts about home fire safety in the lead up to winter.

“We see a 10% increase in the number of home fires during the winter months, with more fires starting in bedrooms and loungerooms due to things like heaters and electric blankets,” he said.

“Come and meet the team that’s prepared for anything on Open Day and learn how to keep your family safe from fire and other emergencies.”
