At Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust we have our own constitution and committee to ensure our collection is maintained and the aims and objectives of the group are implemented.

We operate a “Preservation Through Operation” policy whereby our appliances and equipment are kept in a mechanically sound and roadworthy condition by operating and maintaining them regularly. The Preservation Group also provides a “Living Museum” facility by taking our exhibits to the public.

Throughout the summer and winter months, the Group’s vehicles attend events almost every weekend.

It is our policy to support events especially those with a charitable cause, the Fire Fighters Charity being one of the main recipients of our efforts.

In addition to supporting events with a charitable cause the Preservation Group also works closely with the Community Safety Department of Strathclyde Fire & Rescue and many of the events we attend are referrals from this department.

Events Events
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust Paisley Event
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust Event
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust Greenock Event
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust Paisley Event
  • Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Trust Event


There is always enormous interest shown in our vehicles and we try to channel this interest to promote the fire safety message especially to the younger members of the community by using in part, the history of the fire brigade.
