Community Event Visits

Community Event Visits
(We send a fire truck and crew to visit your community event)

After a very uncertain year the MFS is pleased to once again offer Community Event Visits to groups holding public events in the community from Thursday 1 July 2021.

To book a Community Event Visit please download the form below and once completed either email, post, fax or hand deliver it to us using the addresses listed in the form.

Due to the popularity of these activities, requests must be made at least five weeks in advance to ensure the best opportunity of securing a booking.

Conditions of MFS Community Event Visit:

  • The MFS offers Community Event Visits for pre-schools, schools, higher education facilities, charities and community groups. Other groups are considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • The visit will consist of a fire truck with crew attending and engaging with your community on the subject of fire safety in the home.
  • Each visit must have a minimum of 50 attendees.
  • Note groups can only participate in one visit by a fire crew and appliance per day.
  • Where the group is primarily children, it is a requirement that there are adults on hand to provide a supervisory role. Firefighters will not manage or supervise your children’s groups.
