The Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board (MFB) provides a world-
class fire and rescue service.
CoveringA more thanA 1,000 square kilometres, we protect more than two
million residents, workers and visitors to Melbourne, as well as billions of
dollars of assets and infrastructure - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
MFB firefighters are the first to respond to specific medical emergencies

first in Australia.
The MFB consistently reports some of the fastest emergency response times and
achieves the highest percentage of fire containment to room of origin among
all other Australian fire services.
