The FSPG was founded in London in 1968, and called at that time The Auxiliary and National Fire Service Preservation Group. The purpose was to preserve the equipment and appliances of the National and Auxillary fire services after their disbandment. The present title was adopted in 1972, and with this change the group widened its aims to include all aspects of fire service preservation and interests.

Members of "the group" come from all walks of life, many of whom are former or serving firefighters and ages vary, from new born to well into retirement.

Applications for membership are invited from individuals or families with interest in the fire services, their appliances or equipment, or the actual restoration and preservation of fire appliances. Whilst some members own and operate appliances, others are interested in modelling, producing models from kits or in many cases from scratch. Others collect helmets, badges, uniform, die-cast models or photographs. In fact anything which is of interest, but for some just being a member brings its own rewards.
