“Rich San Diego tradition”

A museum of firefighting history in San Diego. The museum is housed in former San Diego Fire Station 6 and highlights many retired San Diego fire apparatus. The museum’s brick-and-mortar building in Little Italy features all manner of fire-fighting gear imaginable and pays tribute to fire marshals, chiefs, deputy chiefs, alarm dispatchers and battalions who have answered the call of duty. Visitors will see firefighting memorabilia dating back 100 years.  Everything from fire buckets to early firefighting apparatus is on display. Founded in 1962, the Firehouse Museum occupies the former home of San Diego Fire Station No. 6, which now resides in Otay Mesa. The museum’s brick-and-mortar building in Little Italy features firefighting equipment and apparatus dating back to the late 1800s.  La Jolla's first fire engine, a horse drawn steamer and piece of steel from the World Trade Center are some of the highlighted pieces.  Firefighting's rich tradition and heritage live on in the San Diego Firehouse Museum.
