    Default Firefighting Museums / hello from PIttsburgh

    HELLO,
    My name is Shawn MacIntyre, I am a Firefighter/EMT with Etna fire dept. across the Allegheny river from Pittsburgh PA.

    I am looking for anyone who has information on starting a firefighting museum. Mainly what type of ordeals did you have to go through to get started, who did you get help from , etc.

    Also if you are from Pittsburgh or the area, and have some interest in doing the same thing here, please drop me a line. I'd like to get moving on this soon.
    thanks,
    Shawn

    There's a Brookhaven Town Vollie's Museum in Ridge, (Long Island) NY. About 5 years old. My dad's the treasurer and one of the founders.

    I'm at work, so I don't have any info on me. E-mail me so that I remember, and I will snail mail you and e-mail you info.

    Check out:
    http://www.firemuseumnetwork.org /

    If that doesn't work, try web links under this page and look for International Association of Fire Chiefs. On the left hand side (yellow column) is the list of topics and Fire Museums is under it! Good luck.
