Lithgow Fire Station Open Day
Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) will hold its annual Open Day on Saturday 18 May 2019 between 10.00am and 2.00pm and everyone is invited to come along.
Visitors will get a glimpse into Australia’s busiest fire and rescue service. They will have the opportunity to hop on a fire truck and chat with firefighters to learn more about what they do every day.
Open Day includes safety demonstrations, fire station tours and the chance to inspect equipment and trucks used by our firefighters when responding to all kinds of fire and rescue emergencies. There will also be an array of activities for all children who attend. It’s a great time to also speak to firefighters first-hand about fire safety in the home, including how to install and maintain smoke alarms and how to develop a home escape plan to ensure they can quickly and safely escape in the event of a fire.
For more information, contact your local fire station.
The remnants of the Blast Furnace stand tall reminding us that Lithgow was the birthplace of the Australian iron and steel industry. Constructed in 1913, the Lithgow Blast Furnace, at its peak, produced 105,000 tonnes of pig iron produced primarily for use by the Trans-Australia Railway.
Recent improvements at the site have provided waling paths across the site and informative signage with images of how things used to be.
Address: Inch Street, Lithgow
