The annual event is eagerly anticipated by the community with the doors of the station thrown wide open and families invited to walk through.

The event runs from 10am until 2pm at the station opposite the Doug Walters Pavilion at Bennett Park.

David Robinson from the station said the day was a great opportunity for the whole family to go behind the scenes of the station.

“We have goodies for the kids to take home and hope to do a demonstration of how we cut up a car for road rescue and accidents,” he said.

“We are happy to show people around the station and show them the station’equipment.

“It’s a great chance for residents to meet the men and women at the station, talk to us about our role and ask any questions they might have.”

The station runs a program to assist elderly residents where officers can visit and do a quick inspection of their homes for a safety check and give advice on smoke alarms.

Saturday sees your chance to get up close to the trucks and take a good look around the station.
