Tampa Firefighters Museum
This is the Tampa Firefighters Museum, located on Zack Street downtown. The vintage fire engines were displayed outside during a special event last year, I don’t think all of these are normally on exhibit at the museum. It’s a small but very interesting museum and the space is available to rent for private events.
Below is an old Gamewell fire alarm system for identifying the location of fires. We didn’t always have GPS and smartphones.
Imagine jumping into this “life saving machine” if your life depended on it:
Firefighters must be among the bravest people on the planet. Drop by the museum and thank them sometime.
