Museum News


The Museum will be staging another Roadshow event at a local garden centre this autumn.  Vehicles from our historic fire appliance fleet will be on show at the ALL-IN-ONE GARDEN CENTRE, SLATTOCKS, MIDDLETON on Saturday 26th October. As well as the old equipment, visitors will be able to explore our plans for the new museum and discuss the redevelopment with the volunteer team.  Look out for the Museum at more external events this summer, full details on the Forthcoming Events page.

Mission Statement

”To explore, preserve and make accessible the history of fire, fire engineering and the fire and rescue services in the Greater Manchester region and, through our collections and resources, to further the education and promotion of fire safety in the community.”
