The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

Waiuku Fire Station - New Zealand
Typical two-bay volunteer fire station found throughout New Zealand. Most have a siren tower (in this case to the immediate left of building) although now most brigades are turned out by pager. Interestingly, the Waiuku VFB still sound their seven-mile double- header siren. If that doesn't get your blood flowing - nothing will!!
