Public Visits

Public visits

The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) is committed to promoting home fire safety within our community. Subject to availability, incidents and safety conditions, a variety of public engagements can be booked with MFS firefighters including the following:

Career Information Sessions

Where Firefighters provide information to groups seeking to understand the MFS firefighter recruitment process and the role and responsibilities of Operational Firefighters. There are a variety of sessions available depending on the particular group.

Educational Appliance Visit

Where Firefighters bring a fire appliance (truck) to your school, kindergarten or community event.

Educational Station Tour

Where you come to an MFS Fire Station and tour the station.

School Holiday Tours

Where you visit the Adelaide Fire Station on selected dates during school holidays and tour the station.


The MFS is an emergency service provider and the above career information sessions, educational station tours and educational appliance visits are subject to strict conditions including ages and numbers of attendees, access to areas, available times, our training requirements and of course the need for our firefighters to respond to emergencies. Conditions for each of the activities above are detailed on the specific pages.


Fire Station Open Days

From time to time, the MFS will arrange a Fire Station open day where the public is invited to join us and look at the goings on at a Fire Station including an up close and personal look at a fire appliance (engine), what the jaws of life look and sound like, chat with firefighters, and see the type of things they are required to do.

Open Days will be promoted here on this page.
