‘Another instance of the ineffectiveness of the engine of the Windsor Fire Brigade was evidenced at the Mulgrave fire on Saturday afternoon last. The damage is done before the obsolete apparatus can be got going - but when it was started good work was done’.
‘At a committee meeting of the Hawkesbury District Progress Association on Tuesday evening it was decided to ask the mayor to call a public meeting for the purpose of discussing the matter of reorganising the Windsor Fire Brigade’.
A Volunteer Fire Brigade was formed in Windsor in 1863 but the effectiveness of the operations was seriously hampered by rudimentary equipment and lack of water supply. The Windsor Fire District was created in 1910 and received a contribution from Windsor Municipal Council of 44 pounds 14 shillings and 7 pence. The present fire station built in the Federation Free Classical style opened in June 1915 and was refurbished in 1996.
