The Fire Museum of Texas in Beaumont,TX, open since 1984, is dedicated to the preservation and education of the rich history of the fire fighting service. The Museum is housed in the historic 1927 Central Fire Station.
In 1800 the response to a fire was an unorganized effort with leather buckets, wet tote sacks and blankets. In many instances the hope of extinguishing a blaze was hopeless. Today twelve Fire Stations in addition to the working Historic Central Fire Station are located throughout the city of Beaumont. The 27 acre Training Center is one of the States finest fire training facilities offering various fire fighting projects and a six story training tower. A professional effective education and prevention team, administrative team, maintenance, supply, investigation and a communications team now places the Beaumont Fire Department in a position to help protect and serve the citizens and property of Beaumont above and beyond the common perception of just fighting a blaze.
My recent trip to Texas included a trip to the Beaumont firehouse museum. What an exciting place! And admission is free.
