About Us and Our Aims

Paul on behalf of the Committee
The Surrey Fire Museum is run by the Fire Brigades of Surrey Preservation Trust (the Trust) which has been an independent registered charity (number 297162) since 1987 and is run entirely by unpaid volunteers who help to deliver the Aims of the Trust (see below). 
Our Aims are in the main delivered through our Fire Brigade Museum, of which further information can be found on this site.
Whilst a predominant part of the history that we document relates to Surrey Fire Brigade and Surrey Fire and Rescue Service, we are not directly affiliated or funded by the Fire Authority.
We are however very proud of the special relationship that we have with the Fire Authority and the reciprocal support that has and continues to be provided.

Our Website

The website is intended to be:
  1. A means to promote the Aims of the Trust
  2. A means to bring together those who share a common interest in Fire Brigade history to communicate and share information (photographs, historical facts and memories).
  3. A reference point for those undertaking general research related to the Fire Brigades of Surrey.
To access the members areas of this site (Photo Gallery, Forums etc) requires registration, however this is 
FREE, simple and quick.
Membership of the Trust is open to all enthusiasts, historians, serving/ex members of Surrey´s Fire Brigades (whether operational/control/workshops/support staff).
We are always seeking new members to support the Aims of the Trust. If you are feel that you can help in any way, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
Aims Of The Trust


  1. To carry out historical research and to preserve a record of the formation, equipment and activities of all forms of civic, private and industrial brigades and their members, both past and present, in the historic County of Surrey.
  2. The preservation and conservation of fire appliances, equipment and artefacts, loaned, donated to or acquired by the Trust, with the aim of supplying them in active or static form to the public and organisations.
  3. To raise funds to enable such activities to proceed, and to acquire a permanent museum, library and workshop.
