LCC-LFB - Self-contained smoke helmets (BA sets)

Self-contained smoke helmets (BA sets) were introduced for use ?in an atmosphere dense with smoke and dangerous fumes'. A special motor appliance fitted for smoke helmet work was based at Southwark HQ fire station. The appliance was also fitted with a dynamo and portable searchlights, oxygen-reviving apparatus and electric fans. (The first emergency tender.)

LCC-LFB Vauxhall fire station, Lambeth SE1

Vauxhall fire station was built by the London County Council in the last year of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade, before the name was changed to the London Fire Brigade. The station was located on the Albert Embankment. It was considered by some to be an unlucky fire station. Shortly after opening, a fireman, his wife and child were gassed to death in their flat above the station. In 1918 four firemen from Vauxhall were killed at a fire on the Albert Embankment which took seven firemen's lives. The station was closed in 1937 with the opening of the new Fire Brigade headquarters, also built on the Albert Embankment. The station was demolished in the early 1970s

Located at Southwark Bridge Road, SE1, the London Fire Brigade Training School is responsible for providing basic training to all its recruit firefighters. This intensive course delivers all aspects of the skills and knowledge for a firefighter to progress to become a probationer and start work at a fire station. The second part of the recruit course consolidates individual elements and the picture shows them combining breathing apparatus, ladder work and hose drills in a simulated fire exercise
