Preserving Our Heritage and Teaching Our Youth
Many people worked hard and made significant contributions to restore Station 3 and to create our Fire Museum. Among them were FF John Heiser who acted as President, retired City Commissioner and local attorney John Aurelius, helping as City Liaison and with funding and grants, retired Fire Battalion Chief Bill Sharp with his outstanding craftsmanship and trade skills, and former Fire Chief Jim Van Drunen, who as Secretary kept the good news flowing. Jim also took a short course on Museum Curating, and designed and created all of the exhibits.
The Fire Museum was on hiatus due to Covid-19 and other issues, and will reopen soon. With new Board members, new volunteers, new exhibits, new artifacts and new ideas, we hope that you will visit then, and enjoy our efforts to Preserve Our Heritage and Teach Our Youth!
