Information, Resources, and links for Fire Museums
Questions, questions? Anybody have any questions? As the old adage goes, it is not nessecary to know all the answers as long as you know how to find them when needed. From the history of fire hydrants, to information on operating a museum, or restoring a fire truck, you can use these links to the left to help "find the answers."

For those just organizing a fire museum, see the "So ya wanna start a fire museum -- a how-to guide."

  • Other Fire Museums - check out our Fire Museum Directory

    Most fire museums share more similarities than differances. Ask
    around and you might find your question has already been answered.

  • Fire Museum Network Bulletin Board
