I'm Damon Corr, serving fire officer since 1996 and the researcher and author of the range of Island fire-fighting history books listed in this website and the editor and main contributor to the website.

Additionally I really enjoy opportunities to speak publicly to interested groups about the history of Island firefighting. 

Each year I aim to package a novel presentation format for delivering from October through to May (with the months between free of engagements). The current presentation is 'Heroism, Humour and the Hump'. 

Where societies offer payment for speaking, as some already have, it will be forwarded to the Firefighters Charity.

Use the form on the 'Contact' page to connect with Damon if you wish to get in touch. 

Records of events already attended can be found listed chronologically in the Latest News page. 


On 20 May 2019 I'll be attending The Pavilion at Newchurch to deliver the 'Heroism, Humour and the Hump' presentation to the groups members. 

On 29 May 2019 I'll be back at the fantastic Archaeology Discovery Centre, Fort Victoria for another round of Heroism, Humour and the Hump

Keep and eye on the Centre's website and Facebook page for further details and how to buy tickets.
