It is with heavy heart that we bid farewell to Rex Hall, who passed away Friday 2 June 2023

Welcome to the SA Volunteer Fire Fighters Museum. Incorporated in 2011, our mission is to research, record, conserve and promote the history and equipment of the South Australian Volunteer Fire Service.

At our home in Naracoorte, south eastern South Australia, can be found a memorial to fallen South Australian volunteers who have made the ultimate sacrifice defending their communities.

The first of two museum buildings is also at this site, housing an extensive collection of heritage fire fighting vehicles, equipment and memorabilia.

The museum badge, which you can see in the banner at the top of the page, is based on the badge struck for the SA Emergency Fire Services, the first volunteer fire service in this state, formed in the years during and after the second World War.
