WELCOME TO OUR WEBSITE

This is a stand-alone website, launched and managed by our own members, although we continue to maintain a close association with Dorset and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service.

We have tried to avoid making it unnecessarily complex to use.

This is not intended to replace The Branch newsletter which will continue to be published 2 – 3 monthly and available to view/download/print direct from this website.

Members are encouraged to give feedback using the CONTACT US form.

WHO CAN JOIN

Membership is open to those who have served in any fire service for 5 or more years. Former wholetime, retained, control and non-uniformed members are eligible to join. Membership is also open to widows and widowers of fire service members.
