A new exhibit highlighting the 105-year history of the Edmonds Fire Department is now open for viewing at the Edmonds Historical Museum in Downtown Edmonds.
FIRE! Bucket Brigades, Calamity & Conflagration illustrates the department’s beginnings, from its bucket brigade to its long-term agreement with Snohomish County Fire District No. 1 in 2010. Displayed items include the original 1922 fire siren, which sat on the Carnegie Library’s roof, original Edmonds Fire Department nozzles and more apparatus.
The exhibit is on display in the Edmonds Historical Museum’s Upper Level Galleries through April 14, 2019.
The museum is located in Edmonds’ historic 1910 Carnegie Library at 118 5th Ave. N. It is open year-round between 1 and 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, but opens early on Edmonds spring and summer market days. A suggested donation in lieu of an admission fee is $5 for adults, and $2 for students.
