“explore 50,000 sq feet of fire engines”
The FASNY Museum of Firefighting has a rich and storied history. At the fifty-first State Firemen's Convention held in Hudson, New York in 1923, a resolution was signed by the Presidents and Secretaries of both the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York (FASNY) and the Exempt Firemen's Association of the City of New York. This resolution stated that if FASNY would authorize the erection of a suitable building for a museum, four antique fire engines would be donated to the fledgling museum by the Exempt Firemen’s Association of the City of New York. The dictionary defines a museum as "a place where important things are preserved: a building or institution where objects of artistic, historical, or scientific importance and value are kept, studied, and put on display.” We, however, think of the FASNY Museum of Firefighting as much more than just that! We want Museum visitors to explore, discover and learn. We want Museum visitors to be both enlightened and entertained by their visit to the FASNY Museum of Firefighting. Whether you are a firefighter on a pilgrimage to the Museum for the first time, a family looking for a fascinating daytrip or a student of history whose interest has been piqued by the fire service, we strive to engage you by presenting the subject of firefighting as history, as culture, as a service to humanity, as a preventative practice and as ever-changing art and technology.
