Vehicles and Apparatus

The museum is home to over 40 pieces of fire apparatus that help take you through the history of urban firefighting in America. From hand drawn to horse drawn, to gasoline driven. This collection represents the ingenuity, perseverance and technological breakthroughs of the fire service. Learn exactly what the difference is between a "Fire Engine" and a "Fire Truck." See the craftsmanship and artisanship that went into these early pieces. As part of our mission, we are able to keep most of this collection operational for shows and special events so that visitors can learn by the experience of seeing them operate first hand. Bellow are just some of the apparatus here in our collection.
