Our original petition on keeping the Museum of Fire at Lauriston Place has been running on Change.org and to date over 5,000 people from all over the world have signed it. We have also been running a paper based petition and this has raised almost 2,000 signatures.

We have made contact with several MSPs who raised concerns about the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service's (SFRS) proposal to move the location of the Museum of Fire in the Session 4 Scottish Parliament, including: Alison Johnstone (Question S4W-30577 and Motion S4M-15247), Sarah Boyack (Question S4W-29578) and Cameron Buchanan (Question S4W-29695).

We have also had motions laid by City of Edinburgh Councillors Lesley Hinds and Cammy Day to SFRS.

We were allowed to present a deputation to the Corporate Policy and Strategy Committee and a subsequent motion was laid down in Council, asking SFRS to re-examine all possibilities of keeping the Museum of Fire at Lauriston Place. The Leader of the Committee, Andrew Burns is intending to have a meeting with Pat Waters, Chair of the SFRS Fire Board.

A meeting was also held with Ruth Davidson MSP for Central Edinburgh, and Leader of the Scottish Conservative Party to inform her of the latest developments in regards to the Museum of Fire.
