‘Community Open Day’ at the new South Tuggeranong Fire & Rescue Station
The ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) is holding a ‘Community Open Day’ at the new South Tuggeranong Fire & Rescue Station on Saturday 28 March 2015.
The public is welcome to visit the brand new facility on the corner of Tharwa Drive and Drakeford Drive at Conder between 10:00am and 3:00pm.
Visitors will be able to see what it looks like inside a new state-of-the-art fire and rescue station and inspect a fire pumper up close.
Firefighters will conduct demonstrations of rescue scenarios including cutting up a car using the jaws of life.
There’ll be activities for children including face painting and a sausage sizzle with all proceeds raised to be donated to Pegasus, a local organisation who helps develop abilities in members of the disability community.
A special traffic management plan has been prepared for the duration of the event. This will involve parking directly across from the station on the other side of Tharwa Drive. Speed limits will be reduced and ACTSES volunteers will be on hand to ensure everyone can walk safely across Tharwa Drive going to and coming from the station.
