The museum is a three year project formed by many retired firefighters with the goal of preserving firefighting history while educating young minds on the importance of fire safety. Arkansas has a unique history related to fire departments in the days when our state expanded and communities developed fire protection. Arkansas is one of the leading states when it comes to fire related deaths of children therefore teaching fire safety has become part of our mission.
The purpose of the Arkansas Firefighter Museum and Education Center is for the following:
- Restore/Preserve North Little Rock Central Station
- Preserve and Display Fire History
- Preserve and Display Antique Fire trucks from around the state.
- Provide educational training classes to future firefighters
- Provide fire safety classes to children who tour the museum.
