The Houston Fire Museum hosts a permanent exhibit titled “In Case of Fire…Yell FIRE!”. This exhibit showcases the history of Houston’s firefighting service from the early volunteer days and their struggle to keep up with a growing Houston through the transition to a paid city Fire Department and on into the 1950s. On display are three fire apparatus, Station 7′s watch office, the firefighter’s dormitory and locker room, and an exhibit featuring fire equipment and memorabilia. Also featured in the museum is Fire Station 7 1/2, a place for children to dress up like a firefighter, slide down the pole, interact in a cab of a fire truck and hose reel, and our fire safety house.
You will also find history on the Houston Fire Department throughout the exhibits portion of this website.
