The MFS very kindly open their doors to schools and community groups to assist with their education programs regarding fire safety. The tours are subject to availability, fire incidents and call outs. Bookings are essential.

The tours are designed for you to come away with a better knowledge of what a firefighter does, how they serve the community, what the station is used for, what the equipment does and how to react if faced with an emergency situation.
