Created in 1850/51, Berlin's fire brigade is the oldest and largest professional fire brigade in Germany. As early as 1912, the foundation was laid for its own private museum, and today's Berlin Fire Brigade Museum (Feuerwehrmuseum Berlin) has been housed in the Tegel Fire Station since 1983. The exhibition there tells the story of Berlin fire fighters starting with the first fire decrees from around 1650 all the way to their contemporary operations today. A selection of devices, models, photos and films also illustrate how the organisation, operational tactics and technical equipment of the fire brigade has developed over the years.
The museum is often visited by school classes, kindergarten groups and association members. Visitors are invited on tours that allow them to experience – with the help of functioning historical fire alarms – exactly what happened at the fire department when the call came through. In a special devices room, they can also put themselves through a test that all aspiring fire fighters had to endure in order to determine their physical suitability for the profession.  
A very special and rather large exhibition item has been located outside the Fire Brigade Museum since 2005: it's a BO 105, the first rescue helicopter used in Berlin. Starting in 1987, it flew initially under an American flag in West Berlin and then, starting in 1990, in the entire Berlin metropolitan area.
The exhibition also comprises roughly 20 historical vehicles which often appear in special events organised by the Berlin Fire Brigade.
