The principle objectives of The Fire Brigade Society are to promote and foster interest in fire and rescue services, their organisation, stations and appliances.
Members are encouraged to enlarge, develop and share their knowledge of all aspects of the fire and rescue service.
The principal activity of members is the exchange of information and material, including photographs about fire brigades, stations, fleets, appliances and incidents, both past and present.
This is done partly through the medium of our quality journal "Fire Cover", local and geographical Newsletters and Meetings.
