The Fire Museum Network is a non-profit entity which provides a means for networking among fire museums and promotes
 the interests of those dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the artifacts, history, and traditions of the fire service.

Welcome to the Fire Museum Network web site.  Last November our 2016 seminar was held in San Antonio, TX.  We had over 65 members attend the three day event with spectaculor weather, exciting presentations and a true Texas barbecue at a local ranch.
