LIGHTS, sirens and all things in emergency services will be on display this Saturday at a community safety day in Orange.
Crews from Fire and Rescue NSW, the State Emergency Service (SES), police and NSW Ambulance Service will be in attendance to offer safety advice to the community.
Fire and Rescue NSW station officer Paul Collis said they will be on hand to provide a range of fire safety advice.
“[We’ll give] any fire safety advice particularly the use of smoke detectors and give advice on where to place them,” he said.
“Anyone with a question about the fire brigade come up we’re happy to answer it.”
Station officer Collis said people are welcome to bring their children and firefighters will have some giveaways on hand.
“Kids are more than welcome to come and look at the fire engine,” he said.
Among the fire safety advice on offer from the firefighters is how to prepare your own home evacuation plan.
The event is the idea of Repco manager Rob Moxon who has previously run the event successfully when he worked at Lithgow.
Mr Moxon said community safety days were very popular in the Lithgow branch and he hopes they will be just as well attended here.
“It’s a good thing and the kids love to see this sort of thing, it’s really raising awareness,” he said.
Mr Moxon said the free event is about raising awareness of safety issues for the community and not a fundraiser.
Bowen Public School will be running a sausage sizzle on the day.
The community safety day will be held in the Repco car park on the corner of Kite Street and Anson Street Place this Saturday from 9am to noon.
