Firefighting Museums

If the heroism and dedication of firefighters are things you just can't learn enough about, the Internet can help. There are almost 300 firefighting museums in the United States and Canada, and many have sites that will satisfy your curiosity about the profession.

The Fire Museum Network is a great place to begin. The site has a directory of firefighting museums categorized by location, as well as virtual museums. There are also links to firefighting sites including magazines and equipment resources.

Ever wonder about the lives of the people who devote their lives to saving others? Check out the Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting, which has biographies of some heroic firefighters as well as photo galleries of the museum's exhibits.

A few historic photos here give virtual visitors a sense of how hard it must have been to battle raging flames with these machines. To see an 1867 hand pumper, check out the Denver Firefighters Museum.

The Society for the Preservation and Appreciation of Antique Motor Fire Apparatus In America has a collection of apparatus postcards and articles discussing vehicles used in battling blazes.






The San Francisco Fire Department Museum offers a history of the departments feats as well as an overview of the exhibits at the actual museum.

Looking to connect with others who share your interest in fire service? The Visiting Fireman lists fire enthusiast organizations, museums and photos to satisfy even the most driven firefighting fan.
