A rectangular medal bar constructed of silver-plated bronze and gilt, with a blue and yellow striped ribbon.

The Fire Service Long Service Bar was founded on November 28, 1887 by Prince Albrecht of Prussia, who was acting as regent of Brunswick at the time. The bar was conferred upon members of voluntary Fire Brigades who had rendered meritorious service for a period of at least 20 years. Recipients of the Fire Service Long Service Bar were permitted to wear the bar after leaving the fire department. The bar did not have to be returned upon the recipient's death.
