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, 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 firefighters, slide down the pole, interact in a cab of a fire truck with a hose reel, and our practice fire safety!
