| "The arriving engines, the hoarse shouts, the nimble stepping and daring,|
The strong command through the fire-trumpets, the falling in line,
the rise and fall of the arms forcing the water..."
| - Walt Whitman, "The Songs of the Broadaxe", Leaves of Grass |
Come slide down the antique fire pole, don a fire helmet and learn the evolution of fire fighting from the 1890’s to the present. Manned by real members of the Fitzgerald Fire Department, this museum will bring back your childhood awe of racing engines, clanging bells, and heroic firemen in action.
