While there won't be any room in the schedule for the traditional Dubbo fire station open day due to COVID-19 restrictions, the fire and rescue team are still planning on allowing Dubbo's residents a glimpse behind the curtain at all the hard work they're doing.
The staff will host a 'virtual tour' of the station, and are taking questions submitted through Facebook, to answer any enquiries people have, according to Station Officer John Poulos.
"Chris Cusack, he's one of our other station officers, he's running the Facebook page for the station and he's putting stuff together on there for the 'open day' for the fire station," Mr Poulos said.
"We've also had Steve Gilbert, who's been taking people on a little bit of a virtual tour and sort of showing people the ins and outs."
Mr Poulos said that while the Fire and Rescue team were still hard at work, missing out on meeting with the public was disappointing.
"We'll miss the interaction, getting to speak to them and answer the questions, explain how we operate and get to show people the services we provide," Mr Poulos said.
"Face to face is always better."
Mr Poulos also advised residents to ensure they had a working smoke alarm heading into winter and to make sure that they had a fire escape plan in place.
