The Leicestershire Fire Brigade was formed in 1974 after the 1974 Fire Services Act merging county borough fire brigades into county brigades! The Merging of Leicester & Rutland Fire Brigades & Leicester City County Borough Fire Brigade formed the new Leicestershire Fire Brigade & the badge lasted until 1987 when the service became a new Fire & Rescue Service as many brigades around the country were recognising the greater roles expected of a fire service!
