This month Fire-Dex celebrated our top performing distributor partners and sales representatives at a special four-day event in Miami, Florida. This annual event is our way of saying thank you for your continued commitment to the Fire-Dex brand and to those serving in the fire service.
The Jacksonville Fire Museum in Jacksonville, Florida serves as a link for past and present fire history for Jacksonville. The museum also serves as the State of Florida Fire Museum.
Exhibits include photos and information about the Great Fire of 1901, a fully restored 1902 American LaFrance horse-drawn fire engine (pictured) and a working 1926 American LaFrance fire engine.
The museum was destroyed during the Great Fire of 1901 in Jacksonville on May 3, 1901. In 1973, Fire Station No. 3 was placed on the National Registry of Historical Monuments. The building was declared unstable in 1993 and a restoration project began. Today, Fire Station No. 3 sits in the Jacksonville Metropolitan Park.
