One thing I know is that children love firemen and I wanted to incorporate hands-on activities for them to do. They wouldn’t be able to touch the 1902 fire wagon or the 1924 fire engine but taking a fire truck down to the level of children would allow them to sit in the driver seat of a fire truck and imagine safely. I ruled that water would not be allowed in the museum due to the lack of employees and time, so included old fire hoses that can be unraveled from the wheel. A scaled-down fire locker is placed with firefighter uniforms fit for children.
