The MFS is committed to building resilience within our community. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to teach people about home fire safety. The Community Safety & Resilience Department has a service where groups or clubs can request a guest speaker for a Home Fire Safety presentation.
Many different presentations have been developed to suit differing community needs, including:
- Carer Program - Supporting units of competency from the CHC08 Community Services Training Package.
- Aged Care Program - For clubs and groups of more elderly people.
- Multicultural Program - For people who have English as a second language.
- New Arrivals Program - For newly arrived migrants with little or no English language.
- General Fire Safety - For general interest groups such as Neighbourhood Watch, Sporting clubs, Weight Watchers, Rotary etc.
- School Program - For high school children.
- Indigenous Fire Safety and Burns Prevention.
The various presentations can be tailored to suit the needs of the particular group and range in length from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on individual requirements.
The presentations can be electronic using data projectors with powerpoint presentations and movies or more conversational with the presenter demonstrating various pieces of home fire safety equipment including smoke alarms and fire blankets.
There is no charge to the group from the MFS for this service however we usually request that the group consists of at least 15 people.
Bookings are subject to availability of a suitable Officer.
The MFS is unable to provide commercial Fire Warden Training.
