Fire Museum of Memphis and its collection

Fire Museum of Memphis

The Fire Museum of Memphis is located in Fire Engine House No. 1 on 118 Adams Avenue in Memphis , Tennessee , USA . In the heart of downtown Memphis, the FMOM (Fire Museum of Memphis) is considered the premiere fire museum in the country, dedicated to documenting and promoting the local history of fire fighting and educating the public in fire and life safety. The FMOM hosts fire departments both nationally and internationally in their quest to emulate their success. Working with the University of Memphis to validate their Fire Prevention Public Education Curriculum, the Fire Museum of Memphis is the first of its kind to capture data, testing their Fire Prevention effectiveness. Local schools are offered free admission with bus transportation reimbursement, drastically impacting a fire fatality rate that was two and one half times the national average when the museum opened in October, 1998. The museum provides interactive exhibits as well as video documentation. In 2014, the museum underwent 1.5 million dollars in renovations.
