Our tour begins at an old fire station on Institute Street. This station once used horses, then adapted to motorized fire apparatus until the station was decommissioned. It is now home to the ‘informal’ portion of the main museum, housing photos, artifacts and collections.
We then drive to the Fire Ops Center on Printers Parkway. This is the formal fire museum, founded by a former department Doctor, Lester Williams and named in his honor. After the tour, you will be able to browse the gift shop. All purchases (cash or check only please) go to the non-profit museum.
Although not included in this tour, you are encouraged to visit the Fire Fighters Memorial on the corner of Pikes Peak and Hancock Parkway, in Memorial Park.
