The most exciting event at A FIRE ENGINE PARTY is a trip on the Fire Engine. We can pick you and your friends up from your home, a park or any location of your choice. Normally the visit lasts 45 minutes with an extension possible. Each passenger gets a Colouring In page and the birthday child receives a professionally printed "Junior Firefighters' Certificate. For the best party ever call Firefighter Rob and make a booking.

Firefighter Rob has two reliable Fire Engines to choose from:
1. 1942 International K4 (1942 to 1970 Open vehicle)
2. 1991 Isuzu Twin Cab
These vehicles are suitable for background positioning, etc for TV shows, newspaper and television advertising. All props can be supplied with the vehicle.

Whether it's delivering Santa to the local Christmas Carols night or to a Shopping Centre, we have the ideal transport! With crowds in excess of 10,000 Firefighter Rob delivered Santa to Bayside Council's "Bayside Carols in the Park" at Dendy Park.

It's your last night of freedom and you will want to celebrate and remember it... Get all your friends together for some fun riding on a REAL fire engine, dressed in REAL uniforms and helmets, and a REAL firefighter to drive you around. An unusual way to arrive at a venue for further festivities, too!


These are strictly the only suburbs we cover in Melbourne

Check to see if you are in our new service area:

Our K4 Pumper was in service from 1942 to 1970 and was stationed at 5 fire stations around Victoria. The body was built locally in Kavanagh Street, South Melbourne by Alf A. Mitchell Pty. Ltd. Pictured at the right is the engine turning out to a fire call from Frankston Fire Station in 1944, the other stations were Geelong, Lilydale, Watchem and Rochester.

Back before 1944 the current CFA was known as the Country Fire Brigades Board. The amidships pump produced 350 gallons of water per minute.

Dear Rob

Last Saturday afternoon you came to my son Thomas's 4th birthday party and gave the children rides on your vintage fire engine. I just want to say thank you so very much for your time, professionalism and caring attitude toward all of the children. Each child who went on the engine had a smile on their face for the rest of the day. My son, who is fairly quiet, has not stopped chatting about you and your engine. You made a little boy extremely happy. The adults present were similarly impressed with your rides. Thank you once again,

Kind regards, Leanne.




Dear Firefighter Rob

We cannot thank you enough for the terrific time Ben had at his third birthday party at the weekend. Children from 2 to 10 were delighted by the fire engine and the adults were tripping over themselves to get a ride too. The whole street came out to join in and I think most of Bentleigh had a ball waving to the children as they rode past. The children were so busy they did not eat piles of junky party food and as a result we had a three year old's party with 16 kids and no fights or tantrums. I cannot recommend you enough to my friends and other mothers looking for a exciting, educational and affordable Party Solution.

Dear Firefighter Rob

Thank you for helping us achieve a successful Christmas Party Break-Up for Studley Park Kindergarten. The children were thrilled with the rides. The adults commented on how friendly and professional the driver was.

Yours sincerely
