The Fire Services Museum

The Fire Services Museum Building was constructed in 1920 in a European style, featuring more than 700 exhibits in two halls that occupy an area of 350 square meters. Visitors will find in the main fall a series of both Chinese and British manufactured pumps, old British fire engines, a display showing a fireman sliding down a pole, historic pictures and shields, flags, diplomas, medals and badges of the historic fire brigade. There is even a mannequin dresses in the 1940’s ceremonial Fire Services uniform of Macau.

The second hall features exhibits focused more on the face of the brigade itself. Here you’ll find a model of hte Central Operational Post, an electronic board indicating the sites of current and historic fire stations in Macau, a helmet and boots, traditional Chinese hoses and nozzles, ancient fire alarms, the plaque with the words “Well Ladders”, the traditional breathing apparatus of the historic brigade, and public fire hydrants. There is also a model simulating the effect of fire on a wooden hut. All in all this is a very interesting exhibition that is dedicated not only to the Fire Services of Macau but Firemen around the world.
