Schools Poster Competition 2016
The South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) is committed to promoting fire safety practices in homes, in workplaces, in schools and in communities. Simple home fire safety messages directed to children are an effective way of establishing the pattern for a lifetime of fire safety. For this reason we ask teachers from Primary and Junior Primary Schools throughout the state to incorporate the MFS Fire Safety Competition into their term 2 or early term 3 curriculum.

Hazardous Chemicals Storage
Do you have a site with a notifiable quantity of hazardous chemicals? (Notifiable quantity in relation to notifying Safework SA).
If you do, then you are required to create an emergency plan and submit a copy to the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service (MFS) or South Australian Country Fire Service (CFS).
The South Australian Work Health and Safety Regulators (WHS Reg), requires employers, controllers of premises, occupiers of Dangerous Goods sites and operators of MHFs to carry out a thorough risk assessment to identify, eliminate or control hazards and risks at the site.
Clauses 361 and 557 of the WHS Reg have specific requirements in relation to Hazardous Chemicals (listed in Schedule 11 of the WHS Reg) and materials used, stored or handled at MHF's (listed in Schedule 15 of the WHS Reg).
The MFS and CFS recommend that a whole of site approach to the development of a comprehensive Emergency Plan is adopted. The Emergency Plan should be developed using the site risk assessment as a basis for determining what is required for inclusion in the plan.
To assist operators and licence holders in developing a comprehensive emergency plan, the MFS and CFS have also developed a general emergency plan guideline (Emergency Plans at Facilities having Notifiable Quantities of Hazardous Chemicals and Major Hazard Facilities, MFS Special Risks Department Guideline No. 001).
