AAA Editor Notes

Hall of Flame Fire Museum, in Papago Park at 6101 E. Van Buren St., houses one of the largest collections of firefighting equipment dating from 1725. A 10-minute video presentation introduces visitors to the museum's exhibits, which include hand- and horse-drawn pumpers, hook-and-ladder wagons and vehicles dating 1800-1969. A wildland firefighting gallery explains the history and techniques of fighting wildfires. Other displays include fire marks, helmets, badges, patches, an interactive fire safety exhibit and play area for children, and artwork depicting major events in the history of fire service. The National Firefighting Hall of Heroes recognizes firefighters who died in the line of duty and were decorated for bravery.
