Fire and Rescue NSW members will welcome city residents through the Turvey Park station on Fernleigh Road from 10am as part of its annual open day. 

Station commander Jason McDonnell said children would be able to see firefighters, fire engines and equipment up close, which he said was often a highlight.

He said by coming along to the open day, families and individuals could learn to reduce the risk of fire destroying lives. 

With almost half of all house fires started in the kitchen, Mr McDonnell said FRNSW was urging home cooks, bakers and chefs to “keep looking when cooking”.

“Winter is coming,” Mr McDonnell said. “So now is a great opportunity to talk to the experts about replacing smoke alarms.”
