Master of the Company
The prime objective and intention of The Worshipful Company of Firefighters is to promote the development and advancement of the science, art and the practice of firefighting, fire prevention and life safety. It also encourages good professional behaviour and an exchange of information between Members of the Company and others who work in allied fields.
The Company has undertaken to maintain the traditions and customs of the City of London and to pledge support to the Lord Mayor and Aldermen in all matters relevant to the life and dignity of the City.
The Company is essentially a charitable organisation and is committed to raising funds so that monies can be distributed to worthy causes and to individuals who are underprivileged, or deserving of assistance.
At present, the principal charities we support are:
The Fire Fighters Charity, R.A.F.T., The Lord Mayor's Appeal, The Firefighters' Memorial Trust, The Massey Shaw and Marine Vessels Preservation Society.
