History of Arizona
Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting
“The Hall of Flame Museum of Firefighting has over 70 fully restored fire apparatus on exhibit, dating from 1725 to 2004, and one full-sized, hands-on apparatus.
Our school tours fulfill curriculum in the following areas:
-The Thirteen Colonies- The common occurrence of house fires in Colonial America, how they were fought, how early fire engines pumped water.
-The Industrial Revolution-The growth of cities with factories, resulting in larger fires, requiring new firefighting equipment and techniques for taller buildings.
-Industrialization and Urbanization in America-The evolution of firefighting from volunteer brigades to professional firefighters managed by cities, a result of industrialization and urbanization.
Mondays are reserved for scheduled tours, which enables you to keep your school group socially distanced from the general public.”
