The Fire Service College at Moreton in Marsh, Gloucestershire is an award-winning leader in fire and emergency response training and is one of the largest operational training colleges worldwide. It specialises in dedicated training for professional fire services, emergency responders and a wide spectrum of commercial and public sector clients globally.
The Fire Heritage Centre, which is located at the Fire Service College, is home to a collection of 'Fire Art' which, over the last 70 years, has come into the keeping of the College. The Fire Heritage Centre displays artefacts that demonstrate the evolution of firefighting in the UK and is also home to a collection of vintage fire appliances, consisting of six manual and four steamers as well as an impressive collection of art work, including 'Saved' by Charles Vigor. This painting produced c.1890, is perhaps the best known example of fire art in the world. Historical items are also exhibited onsite at the College, in our Twin Towers meeting room and the Connections Restaurant.
