The Central Fire Station is the oldest existing fire station in Singapore, and is located at Hill Street in the Museum Planning Area, within the Central Area. The building currently houses the Civil Defence Heritage Gallery, the official museum of the Singapore Civil Defence Force.
Although the Singapore Fire Service was integrated with the Singapore Civil Defence Force in 1989 and is no longer an independent entity, the Central Fire Station remains in use today.
The Civil Defence Heritage Gallery housed in Central Fire Station showcases the history of firefighting in Singapore, and reveals the developments of civil defence in Singapore from the 19th century till today.
Visitors to the heritage gallery can learn about the civil defence’s progression in Singapore through the years, with displays of antique fire engines and other firefighting equipment. There are customised interactive stations for a close-up experience of what fire fighters and rescuers go through during a mission. There are also tours up the hose tower of the Central Fire Station, which was Singapore’s highest point during the 1920s.
Located on the Hill Street, the Central Fire Station is the oldest fire station in Singapore. The fire station has been nicknamed as the ‘blood and bandage’ station thanks to its prominent red and white appearance. Once you are inside the Central Fire Station, you will come across models depicting the old fire trucks and exhibitions telling the story of fire stations in Singapore. The Central Fire Station is also home to the Civil Defense Heritage Gallery which tells the history of firefighting in Singapore.
