FRV at community events and festivals

FRV firefighters attend many community and cultural festivals and events to promote community safety.

If you’d like to request our attendance at an upcoming event, please contact us.

Fire station visits

Community groups can visit a fire station by prior arrangement.

We can make language aides and interpreters available upon request.

Please contact FRV and ask for Community Resilience to arrange.

Fire Truck Visits to Early Childhood Settings

Attendance by firefighters at pre-schools is at the discretion of each station.

Fire Rescue Victoria does not present structured fire safety programs or teach fire safety to children at kindergartens and childcare centres.

Visits to pre-schools will be confined to fire truck, equipment and uniform displays and basic information on firefighters’ roles.

For more information go to Early Childhood SettingsExternal Link .

Fire station displays

PLEASE NOTE: FIRE STATION DISPLAYS HAVE BEEN TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED. PLEASE REFER BACK TO THIS SECTION OF THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES.

Want to meet our firefighters, view a fire truck up close, and learn about fire safety?

At our larger fire stations, FRV hosts demonstrations for kindergartens, pre-schools, schools and other community groups.

Firefighters cover basic fire safety and show how they use specialised rescue equipment.

These sessions are free and take one hour.

Bookings are essential as numbers are limited and demonstrations may not take place on public holidays.
