Firefighting History - 100 Years Ago

Part of my role as CEO of the Museum of Fire is overseeing the many heritage projects our team working on. With so many stories to tell it is hard to pick what stories get shared so to help the team decide we have selected a few #throwback years.

Five new fire stations were built for existing brigades while one new brigade was established. Four of the five new stations would eventually be replaced or closed. These were located in Young (replaced in 1938), Armidale (replaced in 1974), Kempsey (replaced in 1988) and Adamstown (permanently closed in 1946). The fifth station, despite having major renovations in 1976, is still in use.
