The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS)

The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) is the primary provider of structural firefighting services to the State of South Australia, and was established in 1862. The MFS is a fully professional organisation, recognised for excellence of service provision and employs more than 1,000 staff across 36 stations (20 metropolitan and 16 regional) in South Australia.

The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) is responsible for the protection of the South Australian community from the effects of fire, chemical incidents and other emergencies. The MFS maintains a trained professional workforce that includes 782 full-time and 260 retained firefighters and 48 non-operational management and support staff.

Their organisation invests considerable resources in identifying risks to the community, fostering behaviours that increase community preparedness and ensuring South Australian buildings are safe places to live and work. This work includes that of the Community Education Section.

The Community Education Section (CES) aims to help make South Australian communities a safer place to live and work by fostering safer behaviours that reduce community loss. The CES raises public awareness of fire and life safety as well as targeted education programs such as road safety and the challenges of risky behaviours. Key safety messages are promoted using both large media campaigns and more targeted educational approaches.

Education Officers provide an ongoing service to community groups and schools, speaking and working with them at a local level to increase knowledge and understanding of Home Fire and Life Safety.

Education Officers also deliver customised programs for identified target groups and are also involved in a variety of community events.
