The Metropolitan Fire Brigade is a contemporary fire and rescue service which has proudly served the Victorian community for 128 years. We aspire to provide a world-class fire and rescue service for Melbourne and Victorians.
Our 2,297 employees help safeguard almost four million Melbourne residents, workers and visitors along with assets and infrastructure worth billions of dollars.
MFB delivers most of its services in the Metropolitan District – a two-region, five-district area – and operates 47 stations across 25 local government areas. Our significant resources can also be called on to support emergency management anywhere in Victoria. In addition, specialist operational support is provided across Australia and internationally as required.
As a contemporary fire and rescue service, MFB does so much more than just fighting fires. We provide emergency management for a range of complex incidents, drive systemic change to the built environment through reforms to building design, regulations and legislation and invest in research and develop prevention programs that improve community safety and build resilience.
