Saturday 21st May saw the Tea Gardens Fire Station opens its doors to the public for their annual Fire & Rescue NSW (FRNSW) Open Day.

Community members came along to meet their local firefighters, learn more about fire prevention, view firefighting demonstrations and have a tour of the station.  Children particularly were excited to see the fire engines and firefighting equipment up close which was a highlight of the day.

Station Captain James Wisemantel said “With winder approaching Open Day is a timely opportunity to talk to the experts about home safety.  Winter is the worst time of the year for home fires, with 60% of all house fires occurring in the cooler months from May to September.”  The staff of Tea Gardens Fire Station are available to supply simple safety tips you can employ to ensure you and your family escape a fire quickly and safely. 

One of the best ways of assessing home fire awareness and identifying the risks throughout the home is to go to to see how your home rates.
