Yennora Fire Station hosts open day for the community

Yennora firefighters were on hand to give advice on installing or replacing smoke alarms and how to best prepare a home fire escape plan in the lead-up to winter at their Fire and Rescue NSW Open Day on Saturday.

FRNSW Commissioner, Paul Baxter said it was a chance for the community to learn more about the vital work carried out by firefighters.

“Our firefighters are among the most highly trained in the world and have a very wide range of capabilities,” he said. 

“The job involves so much more than firefighting whether it is across the state, across the country, deployments overseas or supporting other emergency services agencies.

“From chemical spills, car accidents and natural disasters to prevention education and humanitarian relief, our firefighters are prepared for anything and help anyone, anywhere, anytime.”
