Historic Fire Engines Return to the Old Perth Central Fire Station.

It just wouldn’t be a fire station without fire engines!

DFES is the custodians of the Vintage Fleet – an assortment of historic and decommissioned fire appliances representing 100 years of the Fire and Rescue Service of Western Australia. The Fleet includes a 1921 Dennis Light Pumper, in service from 1923 to 1969, to the more unusual such as the 1975 Ford Emergency Tender.

A dedicated team of restoration volunteers maintains the Fleet.  This is your chance to meet them and ask questions as they showcase a selection of appliances, including everyone’s favourite – Motor 28, a 1956 Dennis Heavy Pumper.

Children can dress up in a firefighter uniform and sit at the wheel of a fire appliance, plus there will be rides around the block on an original 1960s Bedford fire appliance!

Whilst here, wander through the heritage-listed Perth Central Fire Station and explore its history.
