Public Visits

Public visits

Due to the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) has made the difficult decision to cancel all non-emergency community engagements until early July 2020.


Our aim is to protect our employees and members of the public (including vulnerable groups) and to protect our ability as an organisation to provide 24/7 emergency response to serve the community.


The MFS has also made a proactive decision to discontinue taking bookings for such engagements beyond that date until further notice.


Bookings currently held within our system beyond July 2020 will be reviewed at the end of June and the organisations will receive communication at that time.


We look forward to again taking bookings for educational Station Tours, Appliance Visits, Community Events, Road Awareness Program (RAP) Presentations, Career Presentations, Home Fire and Life Safety Presentations and School Holiday Fire Station Tours and members of the community are encouraged to monitor the MFS website and social media sites for updates.


We understand this is disappointing for the community and thank you for your understanding.


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.
