Todd Rudloff of Firefighter One drove to Fire-Dex headquarters in Medina, Ohio to pick up a load of rubber boots and fire gloves for departments in need on the coast. Todd’s daughter, Chloe, came with him to help.
In the words of Fire-Dex’s Allen Rom, the photo doesn’t show it, but that van was packed “to the gills.”
The mission of the Michigan Firehouse Museum is “to enhance the appreciation for firefighting history through engaging and informative exhibits, as well as teaching and promoting fire safety and prevention.” The museum is housed in a restored firehouse, where visitors can view 25 changing exhibits, including antique fire trucks, tools, equipment and the largest collection of antique fire truck bells in the country. The museum is part of the Motor Cities National Heritage Area.
The focus of the museum is the history of firefighting in the State of Michigan and the technology that has been developed over the years. You can learn more about the museum on their website, Facebook page or this video they have created on YouTube.
