For almost 200 years volunteer firemen have protected the people of Orange County.  Today's firemen, both volunteer and professional, continue that service to their fellow citizens.

Over the years Historical material has been lovingly preserved by fire companies and enthusiasts.... inevitably of course much has also been lost.

 Artifacts of all sorts are be displayed from old hand drawn fire pumpers to badges and ribbons, from early motorized apparatus to old helmets and uniforms photos and other fire memorabilia.

 A county-wide group has worked long and hard on this project. It has and deserves the cooperation of every local fire company and all those interested in the preservation of our proud firefighting heritage.


Our on-going goal is to preserve & honor over
200 years of service to the communities of Orange County, NY
