Mosman Fire Station rolled out the welcome mat for the lower north shore community last weekend, and the team from gmphotographics were on hand to capture all the action.
More than 100 locals enjoyed a morning of fun demonstrations and important fire safety reminders for the coming winter, before a free sausage sizzle thanks to the crews from Mosman and Neutral Bay brigades.
Local kids had the time of their lives at Mosman Fire Station’s Open Day on May 13.
Families lapped up the chance to climb aboard a fire truck and see equipment up close, in the state-wide initiative that allows residents to learn about the important role Fire and Rescue plays in the Mosman area.
“Each year, approximately 20 people die in NSW from fires that could have been prevented,” a Fire and Rescue spokesperson told Mosman Collective.
“The open day allows residents to speak to local firefighters about what safety measures to take leading into winter and also provides an opportunity to book in a free home safety visit from your local station.”
Kids young and old relished the chance to climb aboard a fire truck at the Mosman open day.
Fire and Rescue NSW has a winter fire safety checklist, with important information regarding smoke alarms, escape plans, fireplaces and chimneys, heaters, electric blankets and wheat bags.
