About the Fire Service Research and Training Trust

The Fire Service Research and Training Trust is a registered charity which was established in 1940 by HM Government following the Fire Brigades Act of 1938.

Within the objects of the Trust, we the trustees, aim to promote and assist:
  • Research into methods of extinguishing fires and of protecting life and property from fire
  • Training Fire Service personnel
  • Improvements in community fire safety
  • Efficiency and effectiveness of the UK fire services as a whole
We accept applications for funding to promote fire research, the development of fire and rescue service training or other proposals to break new ground in prevention, protection and the response to fire and rescue service related incidents.

We are looking to refocus and revitalise our work and so we are drawing together a new strategy.
