Foundations and history of civil defence and fire within Uskor
The foundations of the Fire Guard lie with the original civil defence organisations established during the response to the Christchurch Earthquakes and later Australian bushfires impacting upon Uskor.
Following on from this the various Uskorian civil defence agencies that followed had various names and durations as the various government and forms of government in Uskor changed.
It has been stated that there has been a push by Uskorians both in government and outside of government to move away from the traditional concepts of civil defence and fire prevention into a more community orientated guard, as well as a ceremonial role.
The Fire Guard follows on from these various organisations and was formally established by a Royal Decree during the Coronavirus pandemic of 2020.
