Fire station opens its doors
Umina firefighters will open the doors of the Umina Fire Station on May 18 as part of Fire and Rescue's 2019 Open Day.
The station will be open from 10am to 2pm and will provide a range of free activities including station tours, safety presentations and firefighting demonstrations.
Families will also have the opportunity to inspect a firetruck and other firefighting equipment and to chat with their local firefighters about their work.
Fire and Rescue NSW Commissioner Mr Paul Baxter, said the annual Open Day was an opportunity to show the general public that firefighters do so much more than just fight fires.
"From road crashes, hazardous material incidents, natural disasters to urban search and rescue and humanitarian relief, our firefighters are prepared for anything and ready to help anyone, anytime, anywhere," Mr Baxter said.
