Request a talk, tour or engine

We are regularly asked to provide a fire safety talk to groups or an information stall at events. We also get requests for fire engines to attend events, fetes and galas, and for groups to visit one of our stations.

Fire safety talks and information stalls

  • Fire Safety Talk – to present a talk to your group and give advice about fire safety in the home
  • Information Stall – to provide advice / information to the community, hand out leaflets etc.

If you would like to request one of the above services, please complete this request form and send it to cwalsh@syfire.gov.uk.

We do need at least two weeks’ notice and please bear in mind that we do receive a lot of requests like this, so we may not always be able to attend every event.

Request a station visit

Should you want to visit a station, please complete the station visit request form and return it to cfsevents@syfire.gov.uk.

Please note we require at least 3 weeks notice for these requests.

NB: As from 1 January 2020 visits to Barnsley station cannot be accommodated.

Request a fire engine

We often get requests for fire engines and chip pan display units to attend community events, like fetes and galas.

To make a booking we do need at least three weeks’ notice. Please bear in mind that we do receive a lot of requests like this, so we may not always be able to attend every event.

Please note that the request form is not to be used to request a fire engine to attend for educational purposes, e.g. fire safety talks to children in nurseries/schools.

The National Emergency Services Museum also has a vintage fleet of emergency vehicles that attend a number of events throughout the year. You can contact the museum by calling 0114 249 1999, email info@emergencymuseum.co.uk or click here.
