Finally we have a facility to showcase some of the 60 antique fire engines from our diverse collection. Our Bellflower location serves as a temporary showroom as we work towards a permanent home. The museum is pen periodically (check our calendar) and during special events throughout the year. Come and enjoy exploring fire engines from the 1860's through just retired apparatus. Included in this collection are fire engines pulled to fires by men, six horse drawn steam fire engines, Los Angeles County Fire Department equipment dating back to the 1920's, the "Disneyland" fire engine, Model T fire engines, and 1950's fire engines. The County of Los Angeles Fire Museum is the ONLY place to come and see the world famous Engine and Squad 51 from the hit 1970's television series "Emergency."
We are not just another fire museum. Yes, we have many antique fire engines 60 in fact. Yes, we have antique firefighting equipment, photos, uniforms, and Paramedic equipment. And, yes we are dedicated to the history of the fire service. Instead of highlighting our differece it may be better to simply state what we wish to accomplish.
Our goal is to tell the history of the American Fire Service in general terms, while emphasizing the County of Los Angeles Fire Department's contributions to that history. We are an organization with 3000 dues paying members dedicated to creating a new and exciting facility in which to showcase our collection while providing entertainment and education to our visitors.
