Your donations keep our heritage alive. Through the years, fire personnel have dedicated their lives to keeping our communities safe. Our museum is a way to remember their gift and a way of preserving a time gone by. Please help in any way you can.


If you have fire related equipment from small accessories right on up to full trucks that you'd like to donate, please contact NIFM:
