Educational Appliance Visits

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 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 1400 hours (9.30 am and 2.00 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.

The MFS is not able to provide Educational Appliance Visits for playgroups, family day care, kinder gyms, child and family care, out of school hours’ care or other private events and activities.
