Fire Station

The Greymouth Volunteer Fire Brigade was established on 27 April 1867 and residents donated money for fire fighting equipment. Early apparatus included a second-hand fire engine (imported from Melbourne), a four-wheeled hook and ladder carriage, two 20 foot ladders, 20 leather buckets, and assorted hoses. Uniforms were obtained in 1870.
Shantytown's fire station is based on the brigade's first building.
