Welcome to the Museum of RAF Firefighting.
The Museum is dedicated to telling the story of military firefighting with a particular emphasis on the Royal Air Force.
The collection also includes exhibits from the Royal Navy and the Army. The Defence Fire services and MOD contract fire Services.
We cannot tell the story of military firefighting without telling the story of fire fighting in general. The collection therefore has exhibits from civilian fire services both from home and abroad.
It is thought to be the largest collection of fire memorabilia in the country and we believe we have the largest collection of ex military fire engines in the world on display in a single location.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation and for the safety of our staff and visitors, our Museum sites at Scunthorpe and Alford will be temporarily closed during National Lockdown.
The health of our volunteers is paramount to us as we are a close knit group, most of whom fit in to a high risk category. For this reason, we must cease most of our Museum activities and keep everybody at home to keep them safe and to prevent the spread of the virus.
Whilst working from home we will still be monitoring the Museum phone line (01522730198) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will do our best to answer research enquiries with the limited resources that we have at hand but ask that you bear with us during these difficult times.
For further updates follow us on facebook and twitter.
We hope this is a temporary measure.

Put your name down as the reference and that will allow us to recognise who is actually supporting us.
We are a registered charity (Charity number 1172939) and as such we can claim gift aid back from your donation if you are a UK tax payer. Simply let us have your name and address and we’ll do the rest.
We thank you in anticipation for your support. Without regular financial contributions the Museum will not be able to thrive and continue with its quest to become a nationally recognised visitor attraction specialising in telling the history of the RAF Fire & Rescue Service and Military Firefighting as a whole. This in turn will also help us to become a recognised educational hub that will enhance fire and safety awareness for all.
