Educational Appliance Visits (We send a fire truck and crew to visit you)

The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) is committed to promoting home fire safety within our community. Subject to availability and incidents, an appliance and crew can be booked to visit your school or community group.

Educational appliance visits are approximately one hour in duration.  A minimum of 15 people are required for a visit with a maximum preferred of 35 in total (inclusive of all adults and children). Children must be 4 years of age or older for an appliance visit to take place.

Visits are available Monday to Friday between 0930 hours and 1600 hours (9.30 am and 4.00 pm).

The appliance and crew may be required to attend emergencies at any time and must be able to exit the site freely at all times. The vehicle must stand on hard surfaces - not grassed areas or ovals.

We require a minimum of five weeks notice for all bookings.  

There is no charge for this service.

Unfortunately the MFS is not able to provide a fire appliance and crew to attend a private function such as a birthday party or other celebration at a private address.
