An opportunity has arisen for retired members to assist Dave Farries, and The Scottish Fire & Rescue Heritage Group, in putting a mobile museum on the road across Scotland. Full details of the project and what volunteers would be expected to perform are outlined below:

 

Volunteers Required

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Heritage Group will shortly be putting a Mobile Museum on the road.

The Museum is designed to deliver part of the history of the Fire Service in Scotland through interactive displays, artefacts and static displays to communities that do not have easy access to the existing Scottish Fire Service Museums.

After engaging the public with our history, it is hoped that the local Community Action Teams can deliver various fire safety messages.

We require volunteers to act as guides, to answer questions and expand where required on the displays, within the Mobile Museum and drivers, HGV qualified, to deliver the Museum to the scheduled location, set it up and return it to the Fire Brigade premises afterwards.

Training will be given to volunteer guides regarding Museum content on which it is hoped they will be able to expand with their own experiences/knowledge.

Drivers will have to undergo a three-hour familiarisation course before they can operate the vehicle.

Volunteers will only be asked to provide their services within the East of Scotland, unless they would like to travel further afield, and out of pocket expenses will be paid.
