History of Volunteer fire department (VFD) Mozirje

(more you can find on our website http://www.pgd-mozirje.si )

Volunteer fire brigade Mozirje (VFD Mozirje) was founded in 1887 as “Telovadno in požarno društvo Mozirje” (Gym and fire society Mozirje). First commander of firefighters in Mozirje was Anton Mlinar (between 1887 and 1906). In the case of fire they were using two hand pumps which were bought by inhabitants of Mozirje in 1825.

Anton Mlinar first fire commander and first hand pump bought in 1825

In 1906 they got their first banner. In 1928 they bought first motor pump - Rosenbauer. In 1949 they bought first fire vehicle and in 1953, first fire engine. In 1955 the fire brigade got a new banner. In 1975, they start building a new firehouse at the same location where it is located today. They have also bought a new fire vehicle TAM 2000. In 1980 firefighters bought first pumper TAM 5000 from VFD Slovenska Bistrica.  In 1989 they bought new vehicle TAM 80 for equipment and team.
