What do Fire Museum Volunteers do?

A little Bit of Everything.

The Fire Museum of Maryland would not function without the service and dedication of our volunteers.

Retired firefighters, historians, woodworkers, historic re-enactors, archivists, and mechanics all play a vital role in our ability to maintain, preserve, and restore our collection and buildings.

Here are just a few examples of the many things our volunteers help us with. If any of this piques your interest, please get in touch with us!
