Booking an MFS Home Fire and Life Safety Presentation

Home Fire and Life Safety presentations are free and subject to presenter availability. Each Presentation has a recommended minimum of 15 participants.

Presentations can be tailored to suit the needs of the particular group.

Due to the popularity of MFS Home Fire and Life Safety presentations, it is a requirement that all booking requests be made at least two weeks in advance. This will ensure the best opportunity of securing a booking.

If members of your group have special needs, such as interpreters please include this in the additional information section in the online booking form.

It is a condition of our attendance that all venues offer MFS firefighters a COVIDSAfe Check-In and follow SA Health and SA Government CovidSAfe requirements.

Please feel free to call us on 8204 3611 to discuss any concerns ahead of your visit.
