FIREFIGHTERS are encouraging people to visit Moama Fire Station for the Fire and Rescue NSW annual Open Day on Saturday.
Moama Fire Station will be open from 10am to 2pm and families can come along and meet their local firefighters and learn more about fire prevention.
A range of free activities will be available, including firefighting and rescue demonstrations, station tours and fire safety presentations.
Firefighters will also be able to provide advice on installing or replacing smoke alarms and preparing a home fire escape plan.
Children will be able to climb on board the fire engine and see firefighting equipment and can take home a Brigade Kids activity pack, which teaches them vital fire safety lessons.
This year, FRNSW is focusing on fire prevention in the kitchen, urging people to ‘Keep Looking When Cooking’.
Deputy captain Gavin Milgate said almost half of all house fires started in the kitchen, usually when people failed to keep an eye on the stove top.
‘‘So come along to the fire station and talk to us about how you can reduce the risk of fire destroying your life,’’ he said.
