The firefighters at Cabramatta (with Bonnyrigg Heights), Yennora, Smithfield, Chester Hill, Liverpool, Horningsea Park (with Busby), Ingleburn, Guildford and Merrylands fire stations want to show you through their workplace on Saturday. And bring the kids for a thrilling tour.

Fire & Rescue NSW Open Day is for people to learn about Australia's largest urban fire and rescue service. Stations are open from 10am to 2pm with free activities including firefighting demos, station tours and safety presentations.

Families can see fire trucks and firefighting and rescue equipment up close. Chat to your local firefighters about the critical work they do.

Commissioner PaulBaxter said Open Day would show people that firefighters do so much more than fight fires.

"From road crashes, hazardous material incidents and natural disasters to urban search and rescue and humanitarian relief, our firefighters are ready to help anyone, anytime, anywhere," he said.

Open day is a great time to talk to the experts about home fire-safety in the lead-up to winter.

"We see a 10 per cent increase in the number of home fires in winter, with fires starting in bedrooms and lounge rooms due to heaters and electric blankets.

"Meet the team that's prepared for anything. Learn to keep your family safe from fire and other emergencies."
