The Fire Services Museum of Victoria is an organisation dedicated to the preservation and showcasing of fire-fighting memorabilia from Victoria, Australia and overseas.
It bolsters one of the largest collections of fire-fighting memorabilia in Australia, with it being located in one of its prized exhibits; the original headquarters of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) on the corner of Gisborne St and Victoria Parade, East Melbourne.
Today the museum is run completely by volunteers each with a unique background with the fire services. Some being former and members of the MFB, Country Fire Authority (CFA), Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) and many more other fire-related agencies.
They are always looking to expand their volunteer bases too. So if you have a passion for fire-fighting or a fire service enthusiast, why not pop into the museum and talk to the members and see what its all about to be a volunteer with the Fire Services Museum of Victoria.
