The Victoria Fire Department Historical Society was created in the early 1990s, as a component of the VFD, to preserve the more than 140-year history of the Victoria Fire Department. Officially a component of the Department, the Historical Society membership includes both active and retired Victoria firefighters as well as interested members of the community. They are, in a very real sense, a product of the successful restoration of the Department's 1899 steam pumper, the "Charles E. Redfern" to full operation. A large and varied collection of photographs, documents, artifacts, and fire apparatus was collected over this period and responsibility for its care rests with the Society. They operate a small museum situated in a special section at No.2 Fire Hall, located at 650 Michigan Street, Victoria, BC. The display incorporates two-dimensional material and artifacts which illustrate the history of the VFD and the development of firefighting technology generally. The VFD Historical Society’s website can be visited at www.victoriafirehistorical.ca.
