The Auckland Fire Brigade Historical Society (AFBHS) was formed at a meeting on May 3rd 2010 by a small group of dedicated fire and ex fire service personnel. It was decided that the history of the Auckland Fire Brigade needed to be recorded and preserved for future generations along with equipment, uniforms, vehicles, photographs and any other items that could be obtained.

The interpretation of “Auckland” means both permanent and volunteer brigades within the Auckland Fire Region (2010). The area includes fire brigades in previously known configurations as fire brigade or within area, district, division or region, which includes North Shore and all surrounding volunteer brigades.

Full membership is open to all persons employed by the Auckland Fire Brigade, or any other full time & Volunteer fire brigade, Fire prevention or Protection service, along with retired employees/volunteers of the above mentioned services and any other interested individuals.  Associate membership is available for those living overseas who are unable to attend meetings/workshops etc. Associate members will receive the newsletter, can attend the AGM but cannot vote or hold an official position within the Society. We also have a Brigade/Corporate membership available.
