The Metropolitan Fire Brigade consisted of stations permanently staffed with paid employees. The stations of the Metropolitan Fire Brigades each had a distinguishing number, for example No. 3 Station - George Street North, Circular Quay.



The stations outside the control of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade consisted of volunteer workers and the stations although named, were not numbered.  The Board prepared procedures for inquests into fires held by Coroners and prepared an annual report to the Minister for tabling in Parliament. The Board appointed one officer as Deputy Superintendent.
Above- Goldfield's House, on the site today, but soon to be demolished.
