FSMV Signs Lease !!
Thursday the 19th of March 2020 was a great day for the Fire Services Museum
of Victoria. Michael Moore has proudly been able to sign off on a project
he has been working on since 2019.
The project was to get a proper legal binding document for the Fire Museum to stay
in the Museum Building at East Melbourne which was built in 1893.
The building is owned by the MFB, however with changes to the fire service
in 2020 the MFB will be replaced by the Fire Rescue Victoria from July 2020.
Standing beside Michael in the photo is MFB ACFO Marty Braid who along with
ACFO Dave Bruce has supported this process. So the museum is safe and secure
as we embark on the new era of Fire Service reform in Victoria.
Michael thanks the committee of the FSMV who have allowed him to be their
corporate advisor and to ensure security of the museums continued home and place
in our countries history.
CLOSED due to COVID-19
