The Scottish Fire Heritage Group

Welcome to the homepage of the newly created Scottish Fire Heritage Group.

This ‘new’ group consists of those passionate in preserving Scotland’s firefighting past. We are a group of friends linked by a common theme and all involved have been instrumental in promoting the history of firefighting in Scotland both with the preservation and operation of historic vehicles and the acquisition of fire related equipment and documents.

The website has been totally reconstructed and we hope you find it both interesting and educational. It is our intention to focus on the firefighting histories of Aberdeen and north east Scotland, Glasgow and Edinburgh, the oldest municipal fire brigade in the world. You will also find online a photographic collection of the preserved appliances and equipment each of the three branches of the SFHG has in its care.

On the website you will find a most comprehensive links page and details of other collections and fire brigade museums. The Scottish Fire Heritage Group is also a member of the Fire Heritage Network UK and is represented on the Executive Committee by Bob Wright, one of the founder members of the Network. Our involvement with FHNUK has enabled our group to forge links with other like minded organisations throughout the United Kingdom and beyond. For many years now we have had a long association with the firefighters of Schonstadt in Germany with many friendships forged through this involvement.

We have also included a Blog on our website. This is a facility that enables the viewer to leave comments and have some fun also. It can also be used to promulgate information regarding meetings etc. Hopefully our team will be able to answer any relevant questions left on the Blog.
