Home Fire Safety Presentations

Due to the evolving situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) the Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) has made the difficult decision to cancel all non-emergency community engagements until 31 May 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 31 May 2020 will be reviewed at the end of May 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 MFS is committed to building resilience within our community. We believe that the best way to achieve this is to teach people about home fire safety. The Community Safety & Resilience Department has a service where groups or clubs can request a guest speaker for a Home Fire Safety presentation.

Many different presentations have been developed to suit differing community needs, including:

  • Carer Program - Supporting units of competency from the CHC08 Community Services Training Package.
  • Aged Care Program - For clubs and groups of more elderly people.
  • Multicultural Program - For people who have English as a second language.
  • New Arrivals Program - For newly arrived migrants with little or no English language.
  • General Fire Safety - For general interest groups such as Neighbourhood Watch, Sporting clubs, Weight Watchers, Rotary etc.
  • School Program - For high school children.
  • Indigenous Fire Safety and Burns Prevention.

The various presentations can be tailored to suit the needs of the particular group and range in length from 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on individual requirements.

The presentations can be electronic using data projectors with powerpoint presentations and movies or more conversational with the presenter demonstrating various pieces of home fire safety equipment including smoke alarms and fire blankets.

There is no charge to the group from the MFS for this service however we usually request that the group consists of at least 15 people. 

Bookings are subject to availability of a suitable Officer.

The MFS is unable to provide commercial Fire Warden Training.
