MFB will showcase its world-class training facility with an Open Day this month as part of its 125th Anniversary.

The event will be held on Sunday 17 July from 10.30am to 2pm at the Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre in Craigieburn.

Activities will include a multi-agency demonstration and static display featuring appliances and presentations from across the sector.

“This year MFB is proud to be celebrating 125 years of serving Melbourne, so we are inviting the community to join us in this celebration and take a look behind the scenes at Victoria’s largest emergency services training facility,” MFB Chief Officer Peter Rau said.

“This facility provides training not only for MFB firefighters, but also for thousands of emergency services personnel from the CFA, Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, DELWP and the SES.”

The state-of-the-art centre features realistic emergency scenarios tailored to Melbourne's unique urban landscape, including laneways, rail tunnels and tram stops.

Members of the public are encouraged to register their interest on the MFB Facebook page.
