Back to Top


The Fire Brigades Act of 1920 came into operation on 1 January 1920 superseding the Fire Brigades Act of 1881. This Act allowed for the amalgamation of brigades across Brisbane and its suburbs. On 1 July 1921, the Brisbane Fire Brigade became the Metropolitan Fire Brigade controlled by the Metropolitan Fire Brigades Board.

This series comprises two volumes of personnel registrations for fire officers in the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, Brisbane. Although the volumes are specifically titled as terminations, the records include the following fields: name of officer; joining date; age; address; termination date; reason for termination; remarks. Reasons for termination are varied and include resignations and retirement as well as dismissals. Not all fields are completed. In the later volume, the addresses of the fire officers are included. The 'Remarks' section of each sheet has been used to document the progression of the officers through the various ranks (e.g.3rd class, 2nd class, 1st class, Chief officer, Sub-station officer etc.).
