Firefighter would like statewide fire museum

As a charter member of the Hayes Crossing/Haldeman Volunteer Fire Department, I would like to make a suggestion that would involve all 120 County and City Fire Departments in the state of Kentucky.

I feel like it’s time to establish a Kentucky Fire Department Museum. Contributions of Fire Department history could come from every Fire Department in Kentucky. Since we have several hundred Fire Departments in Kentucky.

An old tobacco warehouse not being used would make a very suitable place to display trucks and equipment.

If possible, the State Fire Marshall’s Office and the Legislature could explore the potential for such a project. It would bring very positive publicity to the state of Kentucky.

Volunteer and paid Fire Departments have contributed to past history of this state and we need to preserve it if all possible.
